WHAAAAAT? Yes, Fox has order the impossible. FOX! Of all the TV stations, in all of the world Fox has order a League of Extraordinary Gentlemen TV Pilot. According to Hitfix, Fox has an order a one hour pilot based on the “League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” comic by Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neil. The pilot will have Michael Green (The River and Heroes) as a showrunner.  

It has been ten years since Fox’s horrible attempt at bringing the comic to the big screen. Will a TV show fair better? Of course Alan Moore will have no involvement with the series. This fact was confirmed by Deadline.com.

Synopsis: “First published in 1999, ‘The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen’ has spanned three limited-issue series and a graphic novel. The comics follow the exploits of a team of heroes lifted from several works of Victorian fiction including Captain Nemo, Allan Quatermain, "Dracula's" Mina Harker and the Invisible Man”.
