Top Cow's smart and thrilling ongoing comic books series Postal — written by Matt Hawkins (Think Tank) and Bryan Hill (Broken Trinity: Pandora’s Box) and illustrated by Top Cow Talent Winner Isaac Goodhart — is being developed into a live-action television series for Hulu, according to Deadline.

The TV series, which will be about a "unique town populated and run by fugitive criminals," is being written by Seth Hoffman, a co-executive producer of AMC's The Walking Dead, and executive produced by Matt Tolmach (The Amazing Spider-Man) and David Manpearl, as well as Marc Silvestri and Hawkins of Top Cow.

Postal comic book synopsis:

Set in the fictional town of Eden, Wyoming, a place founded by criminals for criminals. A place where, despite its inhabitants, no crime is allowed. Local postman Mark Shiffron has Asperger’s, and through his peculiar eyes we see a town struggling to keep its fragile peace, a town on the constant brink of chaos. When a murdered woman’s body is found on Eden’s main street, Mark’s need to solve her crime leads him into darkness and truth about the town he’s known his entire life and the hidden realms of his own psychology. An eerie small town tale in the spirit of classics like Twin Peaks, Postal sets out to take an unflinching look at the cost of justice and the price of redemption through a tale set in the murky soul of America’s heartland.
