Robert Kirkman (“The Walking Dead”), is teaming with executive producer David Alpert, Fox International Channels and his Image Comics imprint Circle of Confusion to bring a new drama to TV screens sometime soon. Per THR, “the potential series is based on Kirkman’s upcoming comic series set in the world of exorcism.

The currently untitled show, “centers on 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 said in a statement, ““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.

I’m not sure about you, but aren’t exorcism movies enough of a slow burn? I sure hope they don’t dial back the pace even more to make it fit for TV.

    Like I said elsewhere, the only thing I worry about is Fox ruining what could potentially be a very interesting series. The best thing about “AHS:Asylum” was the demon story arch, and to see this played out as a whole series would be epic. I have to admit that I am very skeptical with how it will be handled if it is for non-cable channels, but Kirkman is a great author. Hope he does the subject justice. It’s about time someone does.

    I thought they were already in talks to bring his other series Thief of Thieves to television? Personally I’d love to see Invincible.
