Story, based on an idea by Gotham Group’s Jeremy Bell, is focused on a man who discovers his own baby picture on a missing persons website. Project was developed on spec by Gotham Group and Vertigo.

Producers include Gotham Group’s Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and Lee Stollman, Vertigo’s Roy Lee and Doug Davison and Tailor Made’s Dan Lautner. Gotham Group’s Bell and Vertigo’s Gabriel Mason are exec producing.
