His trilogy of graphic novels, Essex County, is in development over at CBC in Canada. Aaron Martin (Killjoys) will write the pilot and exec produce the show. Lemire, IDW Publishing’s Ted Adams and Top Shelf’s Chris Staros will produce the adaptation, alongside First Generation Films’ Christina Piovesan.
