Milo Ventimiglia

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.
