Liquid Comics, the salvaged part of the defunct Virgin Comics company, has announced it has signed a deal with FreemantleMedia Enterprises to develop media projects based on the company’s comic book properties.
The first is “Ani-Max,” about a boy who can absorb the abilities and physical characteristics of any animal he touches. It will be developed as an animated TV show. The other, “First Family,” will be developed as a scripted drama about the teen children of a newly elected American president who try to survive in a most ruthless political arena — high school.
The deal was made to help fast track the properties from graphic novels to other media outlets.
