Heroes Star Set For Another Comic-Based TV Show

Milo Ventimiglia could be starring in a TV adaptation of his own comic creation, Rest

The story is about John Barret (who’d be played by Ventimiglia, because he bears an uncanny resemblance to the comic book version, for some reason…), a workaholic who enrolls in a testing program for a drug that eliminates the need of sleep. He soon becomes addicted to it, with serious consequences.

Ventimiglia will executive produce the project, which has received a script commitment from NBC, with film/TV/Broadway producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron ( Footloose , Drop Dead Diva ) also on board.
