SDCC ’14: Robert Kirkman’s OUTCAST Moves Into Production

Acquired last November by Fox International Channels subsidiary, Cinemax, the pilot episode of Robert Kirkman’s Outcast has been fast-tracked into production following an SDCC announcement and the declaration that “demons are the new zombies”.

Debuting just last month, the comic written by Robert Kirkman ,with art by Paul Azaceta has gone into three printings, and was generally well received both by critics and fans. Interest for the series have been growing exponentially ever since its announcement, primarily due to the prospect of a TV series which could prove to be as successful as the other Kirkman venture that launched a massive zombie franchise, The Walking Dead. 

Outcast centers on Kyle Barnes, a young man who’s been plagued by demonic possession since childhood. Now an adult, he embarks on a journey to find answers, but what he uncovers could mean the end of life on Earth.

The pilot episode for Outcast was written by Robert Kirkman himself–his first time writing a series pilot. Aside from this, Robert Kirkman will serve as the executive producer for the series alongside David Alpert of Circle of Confusion, and Sue Naegle, Chris Black, and Sharon Tal Yguado of FIC.
