Milo Ventimiglia is opening up about the concept behind his latest project, a NBC drama based on his comic book Rest.
“For me, all I wanted to do was make a great comic book because I read comic books as a kid and I [still] read them as an adult and I wanted to contribute to the world of comic books,” the 33-year-old actor tells TV Guide.
“Then when the idea came up of doing something else with the concept, and after linking up with some great producers and the amazing writer Phil Levens, it was like, ‘Yeah, let’s make a TV show,’” he says.
The former Heroes star will executive produce but hopes to also star in the series as John Barrett, who is able to function without any sleep after a drug trial program.
