Thanks to IDW Entertainment and Entertainment One Television team up, we will get to see secret service comic book Cobb: Off The Leash turned into a TV series with the help of Thania St. John. Thania St. John is set to be the showrunner and script writer for the adaptation and had this to say about it:
“There is no margin for error when guarding the President of the United States, but the men and women of the Secret Service are only human, as we’ve learned this week……This show explores how one agent’s heroism – or mistake – can affect global security. And how a conspiracy at unthinkable levels can exist, even in an era of total surveillance and transparency.”
Cobb: Off The Leash, created by Beau Smith and Eduardo Barreto and published by IDW, is a comic book mini-series. Synopsis:
