Executives at MGM Television were ecstatic this week as the network announced it acquired the only unoptioned title at Image Comics, 2007's Hidden In Time. The three-issue mini-series, written by Christopher E. Long and illustrated by Ryan Winn, was discovered by janitors cleaning the basement of the publisher's Portland headquarters.

As the janitors were ready to throw out the dusty comics, Jim Valentino, whose imprint Shadowline published the original series, grabbed the comics and said, "Like everyone else, I forgot this existed."

Hiding in Time, is set in the near future, where time travel has been cracked and the Witness Protection Program begins relocating those who turn in State's Evidence to various times in history. Abraham Smith is one such witness, relocated to the past, living a life that's not his own, centuries before he's even born. When a witness within the Program is murdered anachronistically, a conspiracy is revealed and Abraham's safety is called into question.

Long is set to co-executive produce, along with Ray Miller and David Server will serve as producers. Lloyd Braun executive produces with MGM Television's Andrew Mittman

Ironically, while the publisher is celebrating the importance of artists, it looks like Ryan Winn is not involved in the adaptation of the series he drew.
