Robert Kirkman set his sights on the exorcism genre when he announced he was creating the Image comic book Outcast.
Naturally, anything coming from the man behind The Walking Dead is a big deal to Hollywood so there was a bidding war for the rights.
THR reports that Cinemax has secured said rights and is going to develop a series.
The series follows a young man, Kyle Barnes, who has been plagued by possession since he was a child. Now an adult, he embarks on a spiritual journey to find answers but what he uncovers could mean the end of life on Earth as we know it.
Given that it is at Cinemax, the boundaries of horror can be pushed a little further than they could at AMC, where The Walking Dead is already making big strides in on-screen televised gore.
Kirkman will pen the script for Outcast.
