Kirkman Scores More TV Deals; Now Most Prominent Kentuckian Since Colonel Sanders

According to a report from Variety, Walking Dead mogul Robert Kirkman's Skybound has announced a partnership to develop "genre" series for TV and Digital with production company Insurrection Media. The deal sets Kirkman up to be the richest and most powerful man in all of Kentucky, and the most prominent ambassador of the great state since chicken baron Colonel Sanders. For Kiliaen Van Rensselaer, head of Insurrection Media and 429 year old founder of the Dutch East India Company, the chance to work with Kirkman's Skybound is an exciting opportunity. 

"We're exhilarated to be partnering with Robert Kirkman and David Alpert," said Van Rensselaer. "They are visionaries and entrepreneurs who understand science fiction storytelling and multi-platform content development better than anyone else."

Skybound already has a similar deal with Universal for movie rights, which means Kirkman will need to work extra hard creating beloved characters in comic book series that he can kill off for shock value. But can he keep up the pace of producing movie and TV pitches in the form of comic book series while still maintaining the high level of quality his fans have come to expect?

"Let them eat cake," Kirkman told The Outhouse, though we're not sure what that has to do with anything.
