Skybound Entertainment and Fuji TV Join Forces to Adapt Heart Attack into a Live Action Sci-Fi TV Show

Skybound Entertainment has announced a partnership with leading Japanese broadcasting network Fuji TV to bring the comic series Heart Attack to life as an electrifying sci-fi television series. The series is a co-production between the two, with Fuji TV to lead production and broadcast the series and Skybound Entertainment distributing the title worldwide. Production is slated to commence in the fourth quarter of 2023. 

The TV series is based on the Skybound comic Heart Attack, written by creator Shawn Kittelsen and illustrator Eric Zawadzki. It explores a post-pandemic world where gene therapy has saved Americans from disease—only to give birth to Variants: people with powers so unique, the government denies their human rights.  

The Japanese TV adaption follows the love story between the novel’s protagonists; two teenagers from different backgrounds whose connection unlocks a secret power. Together, they are willing to fight for their existence and freedom in an irrational world, despite the odds.

This partnership leverages the creative talents of both companies, combining Skybound’s expertise in developing and producing captivating content across platforms with Fuji TV’s extensive experience in delivering exceptional programming to Japanese audiences. 

Further updates, including casting announcements and a premiere date, will be unveiled in the coming months.  

Brace yourselves for a captivating journey into the extraordinary world of Heart Attack.
