IDW and Enterainment One SInk Their Teeth Into V-Wars
IDW Entertainment and Entertainment One Television (eOne Television) announced that V-Wars will be the first series project developed under the recently announced first-look co-production agreement.
Three-time Emmy Award nominee Tim Schlattmann has been tapped to write the pilot, and will serve as an executive producer on the series. Ted Adams and David Ozer from IDW Entertainment, John Morayniss and Benedict Carver from eOne Television, and David Alpert andRick Jacobs from Circle of Confusion will also executive produce.
V-Wars is being developed as direct-to-series and is based on the acclaimed IDW Publishing property written by New York Times best-selling and multiple Bram Stoker Award-winning author Jonathan Maberry.
V-Wars is set in a world transformed by a catastrophic environmental event that releases a millennial-old virus that once triggered, affects individuals differently depending on their DNA. The result is vampires as unique as their cultures and a response from those unaffected humans like never seen before.
V-Wars debuted as a collection of prose stories that chronicles the first Vampire War, and a second volume is scheduled for release this July. IDW Publishing also launched an ongoing monthly V-Wars comic book series in May.
