‘The Walking Dead’s Robert Kirkman & Fox Int’l Channels Team For Exorcism Series

Fox International Channels, the international TV network of AMC megahit The Walking Dead, has teamed with the series’ creator/executive producer Robert Kirkman and co-producer Circle Of Confusion to develop a drama series based on Kirkman’s upcoming comic book series set in the world of exorcism. Told through the Kirkman prism, the series follows a young man, 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 through his Image Comics Skybound imprint alongside The Walking Dead executive producer David Alpert of Circle of Confusion. “Exorcism has captivated movie audiences all over the world but has never been explored on television,” said FIC’s EVP Sharon Tal Yguado. “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.” (photo: Matt Hoyle)
