Kirkman will serve as creator, writer and executive producer of the series. The Kentucky native has risen to fame as one of the most successful names in comics and entertainment. In 2008, Kirkman became a partner at Image Comics.
Kirkman continued to expand his presence in the entertainment industry, becoming a creator, executive producer and writer on The Walking Dead television show. Kirkman is also the executive producer and co-creator of AMC’s upcoming companion series Fear The Walking Dead for which he co-wrote the pilot alongside Dave Erickson (Sons of Anarchy, Marco
Polo). Under the Skybound umbrella Kirkman produced AIR, his first feature film as a producer.
In 2010, Robert saw an opportunity to create a transmedia entertainment company that would nurture creators and give them the resources to create content while retaining creative control of their properties. Partnering with longtime collaborator, and fellow executive producer of The Walking Dead David Alpert, Skybound Entertainment was born.
