A number of people (well 2 is a number isn’t it?) have recently asked how the plan for a Button Man television series is going.
It is at least possible that if two people I know are curious there could be a wider population awondering.
So, ready or not, here is what I was told on asking producer Roger Kass why so much time has passed and John Wagner and I are still not household names in Netflix households.
Nothing confidential here - merely a description of the way things are.

"It's the usual plodding Hollywood development timetable.
A writer continues to work on the pilot script. Once we consider it "ready," we go out to pitch it. Warner Bros./Bad Robot are the studio. We pitch it to networks like Netflix, HBO, etc. for them to put on the air/net/cable. Warner Bros. TV is not beholden to any network (like FX is to FX Studios, e.g.) so they can sell their product to the highest and best bidder.
The studio makes the pilot either as part of a multi-episode season order from the network or as a step prior to the network making a seasonal order commitment (i.e., the network decides whether to go ahead with a series order only after first seeing the pilot). In either case, the pilot is almost always financed by the network (many of which own studios)."

So if you did, thanks for asking
If you didn’t, well now you don’t have to.

I have been waiting patiently for years for Button Man to be given a faithful adaptation, be it a series of movies per story or a tv series. I do hope that the gritty, dark, almost gothic 80's backdrop and feel of the original comics is kept as I feel that is a big part of what made the story so engrossing and captivating. Whatever the final outcome may be I have been a fan since the first panel and cannot wait to see the future of this project.

Hullo Martin,

been waiting less patiently myself and share your hopes. I would very much like it to start in the UK as does the original.

But should it happen, the extent to which it will remain true to what John Wagner and I had in mind is unknown to me and anybodies guess. It is Hollywood after all and my impression is the folk there tend to think they know best.

And thanks for the compliments.
Best,
Arthur

Ah I was just popping back here to check if there'd been any news or progress. Fingers crossed it all happens and is given the treatment it deserves!

All the best, Arthur, and hope you're well!

Hullo Lee,
oddly enough it just happens that there is Button Man stuff going on, but I'm waiting for a lawyer to tell me what exactly
When I know I will do a blog.

I'm fine thanks for asking.

Best,
Arthur
