Cinemax has purchased the rights to Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin's 1988 novella The Skin Trade, according to Deadline. The story is a "werewolf noir" and Martin will produce the project, called Skin Trade, which centers on a collections agent named Willie Flambeaux who moonlights as a werewolf. He teams up with his friend and private investigator, Randi Wade, when a series of local murders turns out to be something much more.

The show is in the early stages of development so no word on casting as of yet.

Martin took to his blog to share his thoughts on the deal. “I have always thought there was a TV series (or maybe a feature film) in Willie Flambeaux and Randi Wade. Those of you who know the story of Doorways, my ill-fated ABC pilot from the early 90s, may even recall that it was Skin Trade that I was actually trying to sell back in 1991, when I flew out to LA for a round of pitch meetings. So we’re a few decades late…”

Head over to Deadline for more from Martin about Skin Trade.

The story has already been adapted into a comic, and the artwork is impressive:
