IM Global Television and IDW Entertainment have joined forces to co-develop and co-produce action drama, LD50.
The series is created by Scott Dacko, who will executive produce and write the script.
LD50 is an expansive, thought-provoking character-drama set in a world in which a virus has decimated the male population and created a tenuous balance between a small pocket of healthy people and the infected women who surround them.
IDW Publishing, one of the leading comic book publishers in the US, will publish comic books based on the story to be released in Summer 2017.
IM Global Television President Mark Stern commented on the new project, “Given our similarities in taste and the complementary nature of our businesses, David Ozer and I have been looking for something to work on together for a while. I couldn’t be happier to partner with them on ‘LD50.’ Hopefully, it will be the first of many more to come!”
We are thrilled to be in business with IM Global,” said IDW Entertainment President David Ozer. “Their continued aggressive growth into the television business coupled with great creative on LD50 made this a very easy decision.”
“IM Global and IDW both have business models that complement each other well,” adds IDW Publishing CEO and Publisher Ted Adams. “Scott Dacko has created an incredible world in LD50 that will make for a fantastic comic and television series.”
