Amazon has closed an overall deal with Kirkman and a first-look deal with Kirkman's Skybound Entertainment, which he co-founded by longtime collaborator David Alpert.
The deal, announced Friday, will have the team develop television projects to debut exclusively on Prime Video, Amazon's streaming service that competes with the likes of Hulu and Netflix. Yguado was added to Amazon Studio's roster in January to oversee specifically the development and production of hour-long science fiction, action, fantasy and horror series. "Together, we plan to explore immersive worlds and bold ideas for Prime Video".
Kirkman points out that Amazon has the kind of forward thinking he's looking for in such a deal. "Their new foray into genre fiction has us at peak optimism for what can be accomplished during this unprecedented partnership". In features, Kirkman will produce Invincible based on his long-running comic book.
I would love to see an Invincible TV series, personally, but that's already been optioned for a Universal Pictures film helmed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.
At this point, Kirkman's Skybound Entertainment properties contracted with AMC and other venues "will play out their current season-order contracts". Season 6 of The Walking Dead made this known via Jesus when he let the people of Alexandria know about their world getting bigger. How Will This Affect "The Walking Dead"?
This is a massive win for Amazon and streaming in general. Prime Video is also now available to customers in more than 200 countries and territories around the globe at www.primevideo.com. So this Amazon move marks a reunion for Tal Yguado, Kirkman, and his Skybound partner, fellow TWD exec producer David Alpert.
