Skybound Entertainment, owned by "The Walking Dead" comic book creator Robert Kirkman, signed a deal with Entertainment One for the 5-season guaranteed, live-action drama series "Five Year", showing the final five years in people's lives, before a massive meteor strikes the Earth:
A meteor, aka 'meteoroid', or particle broken off an asteroid or comet orbiting the Sun, burns up as it enters the Earth's atmosphere, creating the effect of a 'shooting star'.
Meteoroids that reach the Earth's surface without disintegrating are called 'meteorites'.
"One of our biggest goals at Skybound is to elevate creators by offering them a platform to create compelling stories", said Kirkman.
"Working on '5 Year' is an exceptional experience because it gives us the opportunity to see how writers and directors across the world tell different stories with the same core ingredients"...
International deals are currently in place for Korea, the UK, Latin America, Germany, India Russia, China, and Italy.
