Comic Book Publisher IDW Publishing Launches TV Entertainment Division

Publishing house also teaming with 'Walking Dead's' Circle of Confusion to help with creative end of TV development

IDW Publishing has launched a new arm, IDW Entertainment, that is devoted to developing TV properties based on IDW’s catalog of comic books and graphic novels. David Ozer will lead the division.

Titles that IDW is actively developing for television include comic books “Life Undead,” “Brooklyn Animal Control” and “V Wars.” While networks are not attached to the projects yet, creatives have already boarded the development efforts, with Chris Pollack co-exec producing “Life Undead” with showrunner Paul Zbyszewski.

Circle of Confusion, one of the shingles behind AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” will oversee packaging and creative development within IDW Entertainment. (“The Walking Dead” TV series is based on a comic book series of the same name penned by Robert Kirkman.) Circle of Confusion will exec produce TV projects originating at IDW Entertainment, with Rick Jacobs spearheading those efforts.

“The timing couldn’t be better for IDW Publishing to invest in television production,” said Jacobs.  “IDW is a powerhouse of creativity, and the film studios recognize that potential. By financing its own television projects, the company is now poised to become a major player across all media platforms.  We’re very excited to continue to help expand IDW’s reach beyond publishing.”
IDW has already seen success in extending itself into the feature film space, as property “30 Days of Night” was adapted for the big screen in 2007.
