Walking Dead creators new series gets 10 episode order

Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman’s pilot for a new TV series, Outcast, has sufficiently impressed CINEMAX for a ten-episode order to be confirmed.

Like the zombie drama, Outcast is based on a Kirkman comic. It centres on Kyle Barnes (Patrick Fugit), a man plagued by demonic possession. Life On Mars’s Philip Glenister co-stars as Reverend Anderson, a preacher “who believes he is a soldier in God’s holy war against the forces of evil on Earth”.

Adam Wingard (The Guest) directed the pilot from a script written by Kirkman. The series will air on Fox.
