, the twisted genius responsible for The Walking Dead comic book/television series, is developing a new show for FOX International Channels (FIC), this time focusing on the freaky world of exorcisms. The show will be based on his new comic book series, which according to Coming Soon, "follows a young man, Kyle Barnes, who has been plagued by possession since he was a child. Now an adult, he embarks on a spiritual journey to find answers but what he uncovers could mean the end of life on Earth as we know it."
Kirkman will executive produce the show, with Sharon Tal Yguado, EVP Global Scripted Programming and Original Development at FIC, revealing:
Robert Kirkman, who forever changed the scope of Cable TV with The Walking Dead, possesses an unparalleled talent of telling big concept stories in a smart and incredibly genuine way. We couldn’t be more excited to be working with him on this project, which we see as a reinvention of the genre.
I love it already.
