'Jericho' Comic Book Series To Help Cancelled Show Live On

'Jericho' fans are going to get more of the cancelled CBS series after nearly a year of negotiations.

Devil's Due Publishing has made a deal with CBS to publish a 'Jericho' comic book series that will pick up where the cult-favorite series left off. The writers hope the venture will answer many of the story's lingering questions for the show's biggest fans.

"'Jericho' is alive and well, thanks to the amazing fans who've driven us to find new and fresh ways to tell the Jericho story," says Dan Shotz, co-exec producer of the show.

"Josh Blaylock and the DDP team are great partners and have shown a true love for our show. We are so thrilled about this comic book series and the endless possibilities for the future of 'Jericho'."

The publisher is developing the project along with Jon Turteltaub, Carol Barbee, Jon Steinberg and Karim Zreik -- many of the same names behind the show.

"I can't tell you how cool it is for us to be able to continue the 'Jericho' story in comic book form," says DPP president Josh Blaylock. "We plan to give fans the story they've been craving. This is going to be epic stuff."

Meanwhile,'Jericho' star Skeet Ulrich has been cast as the lead in a pilot for CBS series 'Back'. The series will center on a man who returns home to discover he was reported missing eight years earlier.
