“Five Year” is a science-fiction drama that examines life on an Earth, which is fated to be destroyed by a passing meteor in five years. Kirkman’s production company, Skybound Entertainment, is developing the television show for the Korean streaming service viki.com, and is now making moves to adapt the show for a Latin American audience.

“It’s an exciting endeavor for us to embark on the task of developing this property across multiple Latin American markets,” Skybound Entertainment President Dave Alpert said in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter. “The Skybound team is thrilled to partner with 360 Powwow, and we look forward to telling this story from the rich cultural perspective of the Latin American community under the guidance and insight of their pedigreed team.”

Skybound Entertainment and 360 Powwow will further discuss adapting the series at the National Association of Television Program Executives in Miami later this month. Sean Furst, Skybound TV and co-president, and Daniel Gutman, 360 Powwow CEO, will also be gauging interest for an international network run in Latin America.

There is no concrete release date for the Korean adaptation of “Five Year,” but a 16-episode run was ordered last February and will air on vicki.com once production is complete.
