Having brought zombies to mainstream success, "The Walking Dead" creator Robert Kirkman is hoping to find similar success with demonic possession.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the comic book scribe is developing his forthcoming comic series for the small screen with the help of "Walking Dead" producer David Alpert and Fox International Channels.
The series revolves around Kyle Barnes, a man who was plagued by demonic possession and exorcism as a child. As he attempts to uncover the truth about his childhood experiences, he uncovers answers that could mean the end of life on Earth as we know it.
Kirkman states, "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."
“Exorcism has captivated movie audiences all over the world but has never been explored on television,” said Sharon Tal Yguado, EVP Global Scripted Programming and Original Development at FIC. "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."
