July 17, 2017 Mind MGMT Comic Book Optioned
Dark Horse Entertainment and Universal Cable Productions are sticking together.
The comic book company has renewed its first-look deal with the studio on the heels of Umbrella Academy‘s recent series order at Netflix.
Under the re-upped pact, the two will continue to develop and produce scripted programming based on Dark Horse’s vast library of comic books, in addition to working on new material.
In addition to the recent series order for Umbrella Academy, UCP is currently developing TV adaptations of Dark Horse properties Mind MGMT and Flutter, as well as adaptations of podcasts Tanis and The Bright Sessions.
“Dark Horse Entertainment is a comic mastermind with deep knowledge of the genre and an expertise in developing content,” UCP exec vp development Dawn Olmstead said Monday in a statement. “We’re excited to continue to partner with Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg as we kick off our series Umbrella Academy on Netflix and shepherd the many adaptations we have set up around town.”
