After years spent in development hell, Y The Last Man finally ended up at FX last year for a TV series.
Series creator Brian K. Vaughan, who has worked in TV before on shows like Lost and Under the Dome, is expected to executive produce, and work with an as-yet-unannounced partner on the show.
“There’s a kind of a scrum of interest in that," FX CEO John Landgraf told IGN. "We’ve had a number of producers and writers who really want to participate in that.”
“Ultimately, it’s Brian’s call who he wants to work with and I think that’ll come out soon,” Landgraf added.
The series, created by Vaughan and artist Pia Guerra, follows the adventures of the last two male mammals on Earth -- a man named Yorick and his helper monkey ampersand -- after a catastrophic and unexplained event wipes all of the other males out simultaneously.
