Superhero Hype reports that Robert Kirkman is working on a new exorcism-based TV series in for Fox International Channels (FIC). This is in addition to his work on The Walking Dead and his AMC series Thief of Thieves.
His Skybound inprint at Image Comics, along with Circle of Confusion, are working on a series about exorcism. It follows a young man named 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 with David Alpert (The Walking Dead) of Circle of Confusion.
Kirkman said: "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."
Yguado, EVP of Global Scripted Programming and Original Development at FIC, added: "Exorcism has captivated movie audiences all over the world but has never been explored on television. 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."
