Showtime is reteaming with Dexter executive producer Sara Colleton for Exterminators, an adaptation of the comic by Vertigo/DC Comics, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Created by Simon Oliver and Tony Moore, the comic centers on an ex-con who joins an exterminator company, working with a freakish supporting cast of characters. A mystery surrounding his girlfriend and the manufacturer of an insect poison percolates on the periphery, and the insects are much more dangerous than they seem.
Exterminators has been described as Six Feet Under in the world of pest control. The project, now in development at the pay cable network, will revolve around the Bug-Be-Gone crew, an extended dysfunctional family of exterminators whose greatest enemies aren't the insects and rodents they meet and kill on a daily basis but rather their own self doubts, vices and inner demons.
