COBBIDW Entertainment and Entertainment One Television (eOne Television) announced today that Secret Service drama COBB is being developed for television under their first-look co-production agreement.

COBB is being developed as a television series and is based on the acclaimed IDW Publishing property written by Beau Smith. Veteran television writer and producer Thania St. John (Covert Affairs, Chicago Fire) is writing the pilot and will serve as showrunner on the series.

COBB is a conspiracy thriller following Frank Cobb, a top ranking Secret Service agent, whose life gets turned upside down when he is removed from active duty after stumbling onto a deadly conspiracy at the highest global level. He must win back his reputation and save the newly elected President of the United States.

“There is no margin for error when guarding the President of the United States, but the men and women of the Secret Service are only human, as we’ve learned this week” said St. John. “This show explores how one agent’s heroism – or mistake – can affect global security. And how a conspiracy at unthinkable levels can exist, even in an era of total surveillance and transparency.”

Smith said, “The best protection the President can have is courage…and Cobb. I look forward to seeing this courage and Cobb come alive in this new television series based on my character.”
