Former Blink-182 member Tom DeLonge has been pretty busy since he's left the band! He's written a lot of books...and one of them is now becoming a TV series!
Yup, Tom did a graphic novel series called Strange Times (about his favorite subject: aliens) which TBS network is now turning into a show. The series will be written and executive produced by Aaron Karo. DeLonge will serve as an executive producer alongside Stan Spry, Jeff Holland and Russell Binder.
Speaking with Variety, he says:
"The gang of characters in the story is based on the tribe of degenerate skateboarders that I grew up with — right around the same time I started my band Blink-182. The story is also set in that same town. Charlie, the main character, is a bit of myself. A boy searching for answers, trying to find a way out of suburbia, but laughing with his ridiculous, irreverent friends along the way."
When asked about the soundtrack Delonge said:
"I would love to see some of my favorite punk rock bands like the Descendents, the Queers, and Bad Religion, all of which were part of the soundtrack to my life at that time. But I can also see a great new wave band like New Order, Depeche Mode and The Cure."
Sounds pretty cool!
While the series is still in development phases right now, I'm sure we will have more info to share soon enough!
