Based on Kirkman's Skybound series, "Outcast" follows Kyle Barnes, a man who suffered from possession all throughout his childhood. As an adult, he seeks answers for his condition, but the answers he finds are much larger than himself.
Kirkman is joined as executive producer by Chris Black, Sharon Tal Yguado, Sue Naegle and David Alpert, who also works on "The Walking Dead." Adam Wingard directed "Outcast's" pilot episode.
"'Outcast' is an ambitious series and Adam Wingard has directed a powerful pilot. I am very proud of the work that Robert, Sharon and team have put together," said FIC president and CEO Hernan Lopez in a statement.
"Outcast" is Kirkman's third project headed to the small screen, alongside "The Walking Dead" and "Thief of Thieves," which is in development at AMC. He also has a television spinoff of "The Walking Dead" in the works.
