As reported by Deadline, comic book series Enormous is being adapted into an event series by 20th Century Fox and New Regency. An event series, by the way, is a lot like a miniseries, except that whatever network it’s on is trying to pretend that it’s more exciting than a miniseries. The comic version of Enormous—which was created by Tim Daniel and Mehdi Cheggour—is an action/horror series where some kind of ecological apocalypse has unleashed a race of monsters known collectively as The Enormous. With humans no longer the dominant species on the planet, “a shattered society scrambles for refuge in the wake of the monstrous rampage.” But, of course, “not all the remaining humans seek salvation, and in a world dominated by monsters, man is still the most dangerous animal.” In other words, “Do you know how successful The Walking Dead comic and show are? This is like that, but with big monsters.”

Interestingly, Machinima has already made a short film based on Enormous, so this upcoming event series will probably have a similar feel. Well, the basic premise will be the same, at least. You can watch it below.
