IDW Entertainment and Entertainment One Television are teaming up on Cobb based on the IDW Publishing property by Beau Smith. The dramatic series, which centers on a Secret Service agent who discovers a deadly conspiracy and is yanked from active duty, has Thania St. John (Covert Affairs) on board to write the pilot and as showrunner.
“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” explained St. John. “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.”
“The best protection the President can have is courage…and Cobb,” said Smith. “I look forward to seeing this courage and Cobb come alive in this new television series based on my character.”
The series will be executive produced by Ted Adams, David Ozer, John Morayniss, Michael Rosenberg, Benedict Carver, David Alpert, and Rick Jacobs.
“Cobb is a thrilling project with shocking twists and turns, and we are excited to build on our collaboration with our partners at IDW Entertainment, who not only have unmatched access to a goldmine of properties with international appeal, but also an immensely talented team with whom to produce and bring these projects to life,” said Morayniss, CEO, eOne Television. “Thania has an amazing track record and we are so pleased that she is on board.”
