Comic book writer and executive producer Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead) has struck again with another pilot based on another one of his comics. This time, it’s the supernatural horror Outcast based on Kirkman’s ongoing comic of the same name. It tells the story of Kyle Barnes, a young man who grew up in a family cursed by demonic possession and who now works to find out the reasons behind it. What he learns could have consequences for all of humanity.
Cinemax won a bidding war for the rights to the show even before the comic book hit the street and they’ve now ordered 10 episodes from the pilot written by Kirkman himself. Everybody wants some of the that Walking Dead money.
