Cinemax Secures WALKING DEAD Creator's Next Project OUTCAST

In light of the success of The Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman's new Image comic book Outcast will naturally have a television show adaptation.

Where The Walking Dead airs on the basic cable network AMC, Robert Kirkman's newest project, Outcast, will air on premium cable. Cinemax has secured the television rights to the project after what was described as a " multiple-cable network bidding war." The comic follows Kyle Barnes, a man plagued by supernatural possessions since childhood. Now an adult, Kyle starts a journey to get answers but those answers may result in the end of the world. Along with Kirman, fellow The Walking Dead executive producer David Alpert will serve as a second EP. Kirkman will also write the pilot episode.

Said Kirman, "Despite the success of The Walking Dead, Outcast is only my second foray into the horror genre. I think Kyle Barnes is every bit as compelling as Rick Grimes and demonic possession is way scarier than zombies -- so this is going to be fun." He continued, "Starting a new project is like setting off on an long journey and I couldn't ask for better travel companions than David Alpert and [FIC's] Sharon Tal Yguado and I'm thrilled to be a part of what Cinemax has planned for the next few years."

In addition to The Walking Dead and Outcast, Kirkman also has Thief of Thieves in development at AMC. No timetable is currently set for an air date. Co creating the comic book with Kirkman is artist, Paul Azteca.
