In March 2013, Hogan mentioned a television series based on the property was “under discussion.” In March 2015, Dark Horse editor and Vice President of Publishing Randy Stradley confirmed Hollywood was still showing interest in adapting the series. On May 31 2018, Syfy placed a pilot order for the series. Created as a joint venture by Universal Cable Productions, Dark Horse Entertainment, and Amblin Television, the show was adapted for television by Chris Sheridan. Sheridan is one of the show’s executive producers, along with Mike Richardson, Keith Goldberg, Justin Falvey, and Darryl Frank. Production began on October 1, 2018, with Alan Tudyk starring as Harry. The pilot will also include Corey Reynolds playing Sheriff Mike Thompson and Alice Wetterlund as D’Arcy Morin. As part of the adaptation process, the fictional setting of Patience was relocated from Washington to Colorado.
