It looks like the writing duo Matt Silverstein and Dave Jeser, known for their work on Drawn Together, Accidental Love, and Solar Opposites, are going to adapt the IDW comic Family Time. The writer James Asmus (Quantum and Woody) is also attached alongside artist Edison Neo (Snake Claws). The sci-fi comedy will be a co-development deal as they’re working on a television series and original comic book property, as the series is set to get released next summer. IDW publisher Nachie Marsham has the following to say on the project:
At IDW, we are perfectly poised to develop properties that live in the same universe, across various platforms. We’re thrilled that our first Entertainment and Publishing co-development project is with Matt and Dave; their comedic talent is off-the-charts. We know their vast background, combined with IDW’s robust expertise, will produce great content, both in print and on-screen.Nachie Marsham
Executive Vice President of IDW Entertainment, Paul Davison, also had the following to say on the project:
Working in tandem with our colleagues at every level within our Entertainment and Publishing divisions brings a wealth of opportunities for writers, producers, and other creatives to develop projects across various verticals simultaneously. It’s an ideal landscape for a creator’s vision to be realized.Paul Davison
It sounds like an exciting project and it’ll be interesting to see how it comes together, especially how they’ll have the tie-in comic play into how they adapt this project.
