Robert Downey Jr. Bringing Jeff Lemire’s Sweet Tooth to Hulu


 
 
 
 
Deadline reports that Hulu has given a pilot order to Sweet Tooth, a drama based on characters created for DC Vertigo by Jeff Lemire. The project hails from Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey’s Team Downey, Hap and Leonard co-creator Jim Mickle and Warner Bros. TV.
 

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.
