Milo Ventimiglia Returning to TV for Comic Book-Based Drama
Milo Ventimiglia is eyeing a return to TV with a new comic-based drama at NBC, Deadline reports.
The 33-year-old actor is attached to star and executive-produce Rest, a project based on a 2008 comic book series he co-created.
Is the Heroes wrap-up movie dead?
Rest follows John Barret, a twentysomething guy who becomes addicted to a drug that eliminates the need for sleep. John subsequently works all of the time, which leads to both positive and negative repercussions.
The TV adaptation has already received a script commitment with producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron (Drop Dead Diva).
Ventimiglia is coming off of the NBC superhero drama, Heroes, which was canceled in May after four years.
