VAGRANT QUEEN is going live-action! SYFY announced they’re picking up the series for a 10-episode TV series adaptation.
This breakout graphic novel series from Vault Comics debuted in February 2018. Written by Eisner and GLAAD Media Award-nominated author Magdalene Visaggio (Kim & Kim, Eternity Girl, Transformers vs. Visionaries), and illustrated by Jason Smith, this exciting, violent, snarky space opera is not to be missed.
“VAGRANT QUEEN follows Elida from child queen to orphaned outcast, as she scavenges the treacherous corners of the galaxy, always one step ahead of the Republic government out to extinguish her bloodline. When her old friend Isaac shows up claiming her mother Xevelyn is still alive, they head off with their new ally, Amae, to stage a rescue that will take her back into the perilous heart of her former kingdom and up against a deadly foe from her childhood, Commander Lazaro.”
The VAGRANT QUEEN cast includes Adriyan Rae to star as Elida, the titular vagrant queen. Tim Rozon will play Isaac in the co-starring role and Paul du Toit will play the villainous Commander Lazaro.
VAGRANT QUEEN’s creative team will be comprised of showrunner Jem Garrad (You Me Her, Android Unemployed), Mika Collins (Deep Six) and Mariko Tamaki (Skim). Garrard herself will be stepping in the director’s chair for some episodes, as will Danishka Esterhazy (Banana Splits). Also aboard are executive producers such as Lance Samuels & Daniel Iron (Goalie), along with Vault Comics’ F.J. DeSanto & Damian Wassel.
VAGRANT QUEEN is set for a premiere on Syfy in 2020.
