First, it’s not anything based on THE EXORCIST, so calm down. But Robert Kirkman, of the juggernaut that is THE WALKING DEAD and the forthcoming THIEF OF THIEVES, is developing a third TV show, based on a comic he’s written that isn’t out yet set in the wacky world of exorcism.
According to CS, the 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.“
The show is being developed by FOX International Channels, Skybound (Kirkman’s segment of Image Comics), and Circle of Confusion.
Here’s what Kirkman had to say about the project: “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.”
Sharon Tal Yguado: “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.”
