Animal Planet will develop zombie animal graphic novel The Other Dead into a scripted series, the network said Friday
The Other Dead, which follows the lives of post-storm Louisiana residents dealing with undead animals and unrelenting storms, will debut on the channel in 2016. The series is based on a graphic novel produced by IDW Publishing and created by Joshua Ortega (Star Wars, Spider-Man) and Digger Mesch (X-Men, Payday).
“This is an intriguing choice for Animal Planet as the network further branches out into different, dynamic genres,” says Rick Holzman, executive vice president and general manager of Animal Planet in a statement.
