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.
