Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman signs understanding to rise TV for Amazon


Amazon has a new altogether understanding with The Walking Dead comic book array creator Robert Kirkman. Kirkman’s comic supposing a impulse for a strike AMC uncover of a same name, and now he’ll work with Amazon and his possess Skybound Entertainment association to emanate TV projects designed to atmosphere exclusively on Amazon’s Prime Video streaming service.

The understanding is a latest for Skybound, that also has a two-year initial demeanour arrangement with Universal, as Variety reports. In further to The Walking Dead and Fear a Walking Dead, Kirkman’s comic Outcast has resulted in a fear array that front on Cinemax and only resolved a second season. Kirkman’s comics success embody ongoing Image series’ Invincible, as good as Thief of Thieves, both of that have had successful runs and built a clever following.

I would adore to see an Invincible TV series, personally, though that’s already been optioned for a Universal Pictures film helmed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Still, Kirkman’s artistic energy is a force to be reckoned with and a proven recipe for success in strange TV calm production, so it seems like a good pick-up for Amazon’s possess strange streaming calm push.

This news comes in a same week that Netflix announced a possess merger of comic book creator Mark Millar’s Millarworld edition company. Netflix announced a news only forward of Disney’s proclamation that it would be pulling a cinema from a use in 2019 and formulating a possess subscription streaming offering. The Defenders and a messenger Netflix array subsequent from Marvel calm are partial of a apart deal, and that stays total for now, though it’s transparent that all streaming providers are looking to comics as a wellspring of artistic impulse for programming.

Kirkman’s Amazon Prime understanding should have both comics and streaming fans comparison excited, though we’ll have to wait and see to find out what accurately comes out of a new partnership.
