Amazon has given a straight to series order to “Invincible,” an animated property from “The Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman.
Amazon has ordered eight hourlong episodes based on the comic book series of the same name, which revolves around a father and teenage son as the son is taken under his father’s wing for training as a superhero.
Amazon last year set a massive overall development pact with the prolific writer behind “Walking Dead” and other graphic novel franchises.
Kirkman expressed his excitement at seeing the “Invincible” comic series find new life on TV. The series had a 15-year run in print that ended in February.
The TV series will be produced by Kirkman’s Skybound banner. Simon Racioppa (“Teen Titans”) is on board as showrunner. Kirkman, Racioppa, David Alpert, and Catherine Winder are executive producers.
There’s no word yet on a premiere date for “Invincible” but Amazon has the series pegged for a global launch in more than 200 territories.
