Written and to be directed by Mickle, Sweet Tooth is the coming-of-age fable of Gus, a boy/deer hybrid who leaves home to find the world ravaged by a cataclysmic event. He joins a ragtag family of hybrids and humans searching to find answers behind the event…ultimately discovering a vast conspiracy that forces him to question his very existence.
This marks the latest series project based on a Vertigo property. The Sweet Tooth pilot is looking to join iZombie, heading into its fifth and final season on The CW, Lucifer, which is moving to Netflix, and AMC’s Preacher. Additionally, Survivors’ Club drama based on the Vertigo comic, is in development at The CW.
