IDW Entertainment, the newly launched division of comicbook publisher IDW Publishing, has partnered with Entertainment One Television (eOne) to co-develop, co-fund and co-produce television series based on IDW’s library of over 300 original properties.

The two will fully fund development of each project with the intent of securing direct-to-series commitments for network and cable television. Circle of Confusion will take the lead in creative development and production of all projects with Rick Jacobs and David Alpert serving as executive producers.

IDW Publishing CEO Ted Adams and president David Ozer will also serve as executive producers on the projects, as well as eOne Television CEO John Morayniss and Benedict Carver, eOne’s SVP of Filmed Entertainment, who will oversee the deal on behalf of eOne.

IDW Entertainment and eOne will jointly represent the U.S. network sales, and eOne will be responsible for the international distribution of programming.

“The IDW team brings with them not only an expansive catalog of captivating titles, but the creative sensibility and instinct for developing their properties into successful franchises,” said Morayniss. “Working with Circle of Confusion further cements this collaborative powerhouse and we look forward to the impressive slate of projects to come.
