The projects coming to Prime Video will be overseen by Kirkman, Skybound co-founder David Alpert, and Skybound's co-presidents of TV & Film Bryan and Sean Furst.

Skybound's television adaptations include AMC's The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead and Cinemax's OutcastThief of Thieves is currently in development hell with AMC, and with the announcement of the Amazon partnership, the adaptation seems unlikely. Invincible is in production at Universal, with Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg attached.
