Fox is prepared to come of age with Lisa Joy.
The former Burn Notice co-producer is adapting her coming-of-age graphic novel, Headache, about a 23-year-old woman who discovers she’s Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom and warfare, for the network.
Each week she must maintain her secret identity while battling a slew of ancient monsters from Greek mythology and searching to uncover which of the other Greek gods is secretly plotting against her to take over the Earth.
Joy will write and executive produce the hour-long project, entitled Athena, which hails from Chernin Entertainment and Twentieth Century Fox TV. The former ABC's Pushing Daisies scribe is repped by UTA and Bloom Hergott.
