Robert Kirkman's Skybound Entertainment continues to grow, with word from The Hollywood Reporter that producer duo (and brothers) Sean and Bryan Furst have joined the company as the heads of TV and film production. THR notes that the two will "oversee production on all of the company's projects," and develop TV projects as part of Skybound's overall deal with AMC.
"Sean and Bryan are great producers, fellow travelers and truly good people," Kirkman and his Skybound partner David Alpert said in a statement. "We've been looking to find a way to work with them for years, now we've done it. This is the perfect way for us to expand our film and television production arm."
The Fursts' credits include the films "The Cooler" and "The Matador," and recent CW series "Star-Crossed." "Robert and David have built an incredibly vibrant, multifaceted media business, and we are looking forward to working with them and the entire Skybound team to bring boundary-pushing, creator-driven stories across all platforms," the Fursts said in a statement.
Skybound was formed by Kirkman and Alpert in 2010, publishing Kirkman-written Image Comics series "The Walking Dead" and "Invincible," along with series from other creators including "Ghosted" and "Dead Body Road." It has since moved into TV and movies -- a natural direction given the massive success of the "Walking Dead" TV series on AMC -- with its first film, "Air," released last month. Earlier this week, it was reported that Marvel editor Jon Moisan has accepted a new position at Skybound.
