SDCC’13: Clone to become television series
Image comic Clone, from Robert Kirkman’s own Skybound Imprint, is being developed by NBC Universal for television. Written by David Schulner and illustrated by Juan Jose Ryp and Felix Serrano, Clone tells the story of Dr. Luke Taylor, who discovers that because of experiments performed by his estranged father, there are many genetic copies of himself — and they want his wife and unborn daughter. Schulner will write the pilot script and serve as executive producer alongside Kirkman and “The Walking Dead’s” David Alpert and David Engel.
Clone marks the fourth television deal for Kirkman and Skybound, following AMC’s hit The Walking Dead, and planned adaptations of Thief of Thieves and the writer’s upcoming exorcism series.
