IDW Publishing is developing TV versions of three of its comic book properties, including Life Undead and Brooklyn Animal Control...

IDW Publishing is launching a new arm - IDW Entertainment - tasked with developing the company's extensive slate of comic book series as TV series.

In a press release filled with references to "today's sophisticated entertainment consumer" and other marketing gems (strategic steps, key players, and media platforms all feature heavily), came the promising news that three IDW properties (that media speak must be catching) are to be adapted for television.

First up is Paul Zbyszewski and Stephen Thompson's Life Undead: 

"David Mears is not your average zombie. He's not a mindless killing machine that craves flesh. He's a New Orleans narcotics cop, filled with the Voodoo spirits of vengeance. And now he's out for payback. Hunting down the Haitian drug lord who sentenced him to a life without feeling, without a soul... a Life Undead."

Next is J.T Petty and Stephen Thompson's Brooklyn Animal Control:

"What if werewolves were actually living among us? What if they had been for hundreds of years? It's a wild thought, isn't it? Wilder still, what if these clans of werewolves were actively policed by a government organization?"

And third is V Wars, edited by Jonathan Maberry.

It's far to early for any of the juicy casting and creative announcements as yet, but we'll keep you posted on the projects' development.

Coming Soon

Yes it *is* a wild thought! It certainly hasn't been seen before, not in Ferals... not in Underworld... not in True Blood and god knows how many other films/comics/tv shows :o) Or maybe I should have just said "Ferals did it".

Men in trench coats btw? Not cliched at all.
