Animation giant Rooster Teeth has optioned Scout Comics & Entertainment’s JAZZ LEGEND as an adult animated television series. Scout is attached to produce alongside Rooster Teeth.
There’s a peculiar new drug on the streets of Motocity. Its effects are unlike any other, an immersive psychedelic dreamscape with visions of animalistic abominations and god-like humanoids. This is bad news for Martin Comity, a hard-living womanizer who lives for two things: playing jazz and getting his next fix. As Martin’s fascination with the drug turns to obsession, his loosening grip on reality becomes more evident by the day. An eccentric writer, the reclusive Benjamin Way, takes an odd interest in Martin’s predicament after experiencing visions of his own. Jazz Legend is a neo noir meets cosmic fantasy inspired by the lives and works of jazz great Miles Davis, and the father of beat literature, Mr. William S Burroughs.
