Milo Ventimiglia, best known for his roles in Heroes and Gilmore Girls, is eyeing a return to TV with a new comic-based drama at NBC.
The 33-year-old actor is attached to star and executive-produce Rest, a project based on a 2008 comic book series he co-created.
Rest follows John Barret, a twenty-something guy who becomes addicted to a drug that eliminates the need for sleep. John subsequently works all of the time, which leads to both positive and negative repercussions.
The TV adaptation has already received a script commitment with producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron (Drop Dead Diva).
