UPI Entertainment News |

The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman has signed a deal to develop sci-fi and horror television projects for Amazon Prime Video under his Skybound Entertainment production banner.

Kirkman co-founded Skybound with his longtime collaborator David Alpert.

"Robert is a gifted storyteller who shares our passion for elevated genre storytelling that pushes boundaries," Sharon Tal Yguado, head of event series for Amazon Studios, said in a statement Friday. "Robert and the team at Skybound are some of the most innovative and fearless creatives in the business. Together, we plan to explore immersive worlds and bold ideas for Prime Video."



"At Skybound Entertainment we strive to tell the best stories in the most unique and creative ways in an effort to always break new ground," Kirkman added. "A forward thinking company like Amazon is the perfect home for us. Their new foray into genre fiction has us at peak optimism for what can be accomplished during this unprecedented partnership. Sharon Tal Yguado has been an instrumental force in the success of Walking Dead and Outcast from Day 1. Being able to not only continue that relationship, but also expand it into new territory with the vast resources of Amazon, means great things are ahead for myself, David Alpert, Skybound and fans of awesome entertainment. Look out world, here we come!"
