Netflix bringing Sweet Tooth comic book to the small screen

May 12th, 2020 by Marc Comments

Netflix aims to continue the current trend of awesome TV shows based on lesser-known comic books as it commits to an eight episode first season of Sweet Tooth.

Sweet Tooth, I confess, is not a title I’m overly familiar with, but I’m assured that it chronicles “the storybook adventures of Gus — part deer, part boy — who leaves his home in the forest to find the outside world ravaged by a cataclysmic event. He joins a ragtag family of humans and animal-children hybrids like himself in search of answers about this new world and the mystery behind his hybrid origins.” 

Jim Mickle (Hap and Leonard) and Ben Schwartz (Arrow) will pen the scripts and showrun with Christian Convery (Beautiful Boy), Nonso Anozie (Game of Thrones), Adeel Akhtar (The Big Sick), and Will Forte (The Last Man on Earth) starring. It will all be narrated by Life in Pieces’ James Brolin.

No word yet on when we can expect to see this, but you know we’ll keep you all posted.

Thoughts? Are you a fan of the book? Let me know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
