Robert Kirkman is re-teaming with FOX International Channels, the international distributors of The Walking Dead, to bring another of his comic book creations to life on television screens. This time around, Kirkman is trading in zombies for demons with a storyline about exorcism.
From the press release:
The Walking Dead Creator Robert Kirkman and FOX International Channels Possess New Exorcism Series
Los Angeles– 4 March 2013 – FOX International Channels (FIC),The Walking Dead Creator/Executive Producer Robert Kirkman, Kirkman's Skybound imprint at Image Comics, and Circle of Confusion are developing a script based on Kirkman’s upcoming comic book series set in the world of exorcism. This partnership emerged from a long-standing and successful relationship between Kirkman and FIC during the ongoing run of AMC’s hit series, The Walking Dead, based on Kirkman's Eisner Award-winning comic book series, on which FIC is international partner.
Told through the Kirkman prism, the series 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 serve as executive producer alongside The Walking Dead executive producer David Alpert of Circle of Confusion.
Kirkman states, "Sharon Tal Yguado and the entire team at FOX International Channels have been instrumental in making The Walking Dead the worldwide success that it has become. I couldn't resist the opportunity to continue working with this forward-thinking and extremely talented group."
“Exorcism has captivated movie audiences all over the world but has never been explored on television,” said Sharon Tal Yguado, EVP Global Scripted Programming and Original Development at FIC. "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."
If this project turns out to be half as good as The Walking Dead, we'll definitely be on board with Kirkman for the ride.
The specter of the inevitable zombie apocalypse raised its ugly head on the floor of the Candian Parliament this week.
Since the invasion of the living dead will almost certainly come from the United States, Parliament member Pat Martin challenged the Foreign Minister, John Baird, on how well he was working with America to develop a strategy that stops the rise of the zombies before it turns into an apocalypse.
"I rise today to salute the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta and the province of Quebec for putting in place emergency measures in an effort to deal with the possibility of an invasion of zombies. I don't need to tell you, Mr. Speaker, that zombies don't recognize borders and that a zombie invasion in the United States could easily turn into a continent-wide pandemic if it's not contained. So on behalf of concerned Canadians everywhere, Mr. Speaker, I want to ask the minister of Foreign Affairs is he working with his American counterparts to develop an international zombie strategy so that a zombie invasion does not turn into a zombie apocalypse."
"Mr. Speaker, I want to assure this member and all Canadians that I am dead-icated to ensuring that this never happens. I want to say categorically to this member and through him to all Canadians that under the leadership of this Prime Minster, Canada will never become a safe haven for zombies ever!"
