Deadline broke the news that Julie Anne Robinson has launched five projects through her CannyLads production company. One of which is The Bunker based on the comic series by Joshua Hale Fialkov.
The project is coming from Universal Television which is a division of NBCUniversal Content Studios. Robinson has a first-look deal with them.
Fialkov will exec produce The Bunker which he co-created with Joe Infurnari.
The story is about a group of friends who discover a bunker in the woods that shows proof that in the future the friends are responsible for a global apocalypse. From there, they must decide if they can change the future and how they will suffer for it. There’s of course so many more twists and turns, we’re not spoiling the surprise.
The series published by Oni Press is one of the many series that have been a shock they haven’t been snatched up already for development.
Fialkov is no stranger to television. Beyond comics, he’s written episodes for Alibi, The Code, Young Justice, Skylanders, Chicago Med, Ultimate Spider-Man, and so many more. He is also the co-producer on the 2019 television series The Code.
