Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman has done more to change the face of the modern zombie show almost as much as George A. Romero has in creating those walking flesh eaters. The Walking Dead series on AMC has revolutionized the cable drama which is based on Kirkman’s graphic novel series. Kirkman serves as creator and executive producer on the AMC ratings juggernaut. Now he is developing a new series which is also based on one of his upcoming comic book series’ set in the world of exorcism.
Deadline is reporting, Fox International Channels, the international distributor of AMC megahit The Walking Dead, has teamed with the series’ creator/executive producer Robert Kirkman and co-producer Circle Of Confusion to develop a drama series based on Kirkman’s upcoming comic book series set in the world of exorcism.
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 executive produce through his Image Comics Skybound imprint alongside The Walking Dead executive producer David Alpert of Circle of Confusion. “Exorcism has captivated movie audiences all over the world but has never been explored on television,”
