IDW Entertainment and Entertainment One Television have announced the first series that will be developed under their new first-look co-production agreement–“V-Wars.”
Based on the IDW Publishing property written by Jonathan Maberry, V-Wars debuted as a collection of prose stories that chronicles the first Vampire War. A second volume is scheduled for release this July. IDW Publishing also launched an ongoing monthly V-Wars comic book series in May.
“V-Wars is a head-on collision of real-world science, terrorism, special forces action, ethics, politics and an exploration of what defines us as human,” says Maberry.
V-Wars is set in a world transformed by a catastrophic environmental event that releases a millennial-old virus that once triggered, affects individuals differently depending on their DNA. The result is vampires as unique as their cultures.
“V-Wars is the perfect project to kick off our partnership with IDW Entertainment, and lays the groundwork for a slate of ambitious projects to come,” says John Morayniss, chief executive officer, eOne Television.
