Most TV shows about sex crimes are kind of dark. But that's because none of them are based on Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky's comic Sex Criminals, where two lovers discover they have the ability to stop time when they orgasm, and immediately use their powers to rob banks. Now that's going to change!

Fraction and his wife/fellow fantastic comic book writer Kelly Sue DeConnick have signed a deal with Universal TV to develop shows for the production company, with Sex Criminals heading up the list. Not only will they be working on shows based on their own series (Bitch Planet TV show Bitch Planet TV show please please PLEASE PLEASE) and original TV concepts, they also plan to "bring other other comic creators' independent properties to the small screen."

This news is awesome in general, but a Sex Criminals TV show is awesome in specific. Describing it as "people who can stop time when they fuck and try to rob banks" doesn't even get close to the wonderful weirdness, humor, and sexiness of the comic — it'll make for a great TV series, especially if they can air it on HBO, or another channel that allows semi-graphic sex. I mean, if it's going to be on Syfy, let's not bother.
