Max Brooks' Extinction Parade Getting Adapted Into TV Series
Posted by Joseph Lee on 04.23.2014



Bleeding Cool reports that Legendary Television and Digital will adapt Max Brooks' Avatar Press comic series Extinction Parade into an original TV series. Brooks created the series in January with artist Raulo Caceres. He will be closely involved with the show's development and will write the pilot.

He said: "I only brought the idea to one company, Legendary, because they do the kind of quality work of which any writer would be proud. While the comic series from Avatar continues, I am thrilled to be working with Legendary to develop Extinction Parade into an innovative new series for television."

William Christensen, Publisher of Avatar Press, added: "Max Brooks is a visionary with an incredible ability to tell stories that deliver a fresh approach to the horrors that haunt our nightmares. His work on Extinction Parade has been a stunningly rich tapestry of cultures in decline and a biting indictment of the perils of privilege. It will make the perfect television series to appeal to fans who have until now settled for thinly veiled soap operas parading as horror."

Here's the official synopsis: In a world where the zombie plague has put the human race on the endangered species list, another predatory undead species realizes that to stand by idly means the end of their food supply. Vastly outnumbered by the zombie hordes, vampires descend into all-out subdead war, with humanity caught in the crossfire.

The first trade collection of the series debuts in July this year. Brooks' World War Z was previously adapted into a film that came out last summer, with a sequel in the works.
