Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman signs deal to develop TV for Amazon

Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman signs deal to develop TV for Amazon

In what The Hollywood Reporter called "a stunning move", "The Walking Dead" comic book creator and TV series executive producer Robert Kirkman and his entertainment company Skybound Entertainment are exiting their overall deal with AMC "in favor of what is said to be a sizable two-year overall deal with Amazon Studios". Under the arrangement, Kirkman and his company Skybound Entertainment will develop TV projects for Amazon Prime.

By no means a slouch when it comes to producing popular TV programming, Kirkman's work behind the scenes of The Walking Dead heading into season 8 holds a slate of episodes that will see its central protagonists heading into an "All-out war story".

The company said the deal with Mr. Kirkman comes amid a push to expand science fiction, fantasy and horror offerings on Prime Video. Sharon Tal Yguado has been an instrumental force in the success of Walking Dead and Outcast from Day 1. Kirkman said he believes Amazon will be the flawless home for his future efforts.

Cynthiana native Robert Kirkman, creator of "The Walking Dead," is leaving AMC to develop shows for Amazon's streaming service. "Robert and the team at Skybound are some of the most innovative and fearless creatives in the business". In 2010, his Eisner award winning series, The Walking Dead, was developed into an AMC television series. "Together, we plan to explore immersive worlds and bold ideas for Prime Video". "Look out world, here we come!" Kirkman's comics success include ongoing Image series' Invincible, as well as Thief of Thieves, both of which have had successful runs and built a strong following. In features, Kirkman will produce Invincible based on his long-running comic book.

Kirkman is nearly alone among comics creators for having firmly established himself as as a showrunner with all of his Skybound projects. Moving into the digital content space, Skybound produced the first-ever narrative VR series, GONE, for Samsung's Milk VR platform and in 2017 will produce VR horror series Lies Within, which is the first project out of Skybound's partnership with interactive theatrical company Delusion.

This also sounds reasonable because The Walking Dead is in alignment with those qualifications.

The deal is the latest for Skybound, which also has a two-year first look arrangement with Universal, as Variety reports.
