IDW’s recently launched production arm, IDW Entertainment, has tapped George Lopez and his Travieso Production Company in order to turn Ben Templesmith’s horror Comic Wormwood into an animated TV series. IDW Entertainment will be funding the project, while Circle of Confusion is on board to executive produce along with David M. Stern, who will also be penning the pilot.
“George Lopez is a comic genius and Ben’s graphic novels are epic horror comedy. Building this universe is going to be like a dream. Or maybe more like a super fun nightmare,” said Stern.
Wormwood focuses on the adventures of an interdimensional worm that has the ability to reanimate corpses while using them as host bodies. The series relies on a blend of humor and horror, and will feature adult themes and subject matter.
