Leverage and Closest to the Hole (Ballers, Boardwalk Empire) have teamed with award winning content company CME (2014 INDIEFAB Book of the Year Award Winners) and producer/writer F.J. DeSanto of Silver Fox Entertainment to develop the sci-fi action-adventure property, ALIEN BOUNTY HUNTER. Created by Stephen Levinson, the concept will be released as a series of comics published byCME Comics in 2016. The team will develop the property across multiple platforms based on the initial story by Levinson and DeSanto.
ALIEN BOUNTY HUNTER follows the global adventures of an unorthodox bounty hunter, hired by the U.S. government to do a job they can’t; track down the world's most wanted criminal – an alien who poses an unusual threat to society.
