Jason Aaron's Scalped,a series from DC Vertigo, is gritty mix of crime fiction that is set in the world of present day Native Americans. The story revolves around Dashiell Bad Horse, a boozing and bitter young tough guy, who returns to his birth place in Prairie Rose Indian Reservation. He became a muscle for hire, who worked under a corrupt chief of the Oglala Lakota tribe name Lincoln Red Crow. In truth Bad Horse is an FBI agent, working to bring Red Crow down.
It's been reported that DC has planned to set up the project since the series debuted back in 2007. Now it seriously being considered under the newly formed DC Entertainment brand. Many high-profile writers are eager to pitch for the project. DCE is committed to bring this to the Small Screen, rather thanmake it a feature film, to accommodate the complexity of the story.
This will be great for HBO, give it something like a Soprano spin to it, and this is something really worth watching
