George R.R. Martin's Superhero Franchise Wild Cards Is Coming To Hulu

When put together, the two shows would create an instant Wild Cards television universe and could compete for interstellar domination. Universal Cable Productions will produce along with Hulu, with Andrew Miller set to write and executive produce both projects.

Unlike Thrones' alternate fantasy world, Wild Cards is set in the (somewhat) present day. But for those who survived, it left a unusual effect: it drastically altered their DNA, resulting in some developing grotesque physical deformities and while others develop superpowers instead. Effects that are largely a manifestation of the victim's emotional state, making them vulnerable to reverence or ridicule on a deeply personal level. Now, decades later, the virus still exists and manifests itself later in life.

Wild Cards, which Martin edited alongside Melinda Snodgrass, was launched in 1986.

Wild Cards is a 27-volume (to date) book series. The most recent entries, Low Chicago and Texas Hold'Em, were both released in 2018. Since then, it has become a sprawling, connected universe of characters, spun from an original idea of Martin and Snodgrass.

Martin is best known for writing the "Song of Ice and Fire" novels, on which HBO's "Game of Thrones" is based.

At UCP, Martin also executive produces Nightflyers, based on his novella, which was picked up to series by Syfy with Netflix as worldwide distributor.

While Martin's involvement in Hulu's adaptation might make Wild Cards fans happy, we'll bet some of those waiting for ASoIaF's next installment are hoping that it doesn't eat up too much of his time.
