fables-120908ABC has greenlit a pilot for a series based on the hit DC comic book Fables.  Six Degrees creators/executive producers Stu Zicherman and Raven Metzner are writing the script for the hour-long drama.

Fables was created and written byBill Willingham in 2002 and eleven volumes were released.  The series revolves around characters from fairy tales and folklore living in exile during modern-day New York.

“Their lives become interconnected in vary big way,” Zicherman said. “They share a secret and a bond.”

Zicherman and Metzner wouldn’t elaborate which fairy tale characters will be featured in the TV series, but noted that Big Bad Wolf and Snow White, who are central to the comics, will have a similar role on the show.

“We set up a structure to allow any fairy tale character to show up in any one episode,” Metzner said.
