Dark Horse Comics, who did some legendary stuff with ‘Star Wars’ comic books before the license went to Marvel have signed a first look deal with Universe Cable Productions with a view to producing television shows based on their rich catalog of comic titles.

Under the new deal, several Dark Horse series have entered development, including Cullen Bunn and Tyler Crook’s ‘Harrow County’; Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba’s ‘The Umbrella Academy’; Paul Chadwick’s ‘Concrete’; and ‘Back Up,’ a project based on a feature script by Tom Vaughn. UCP will work closely with the comics creators in order to bring their projects to television.

“Dark Horse Entertainment has an incredible roster of fantastical, witty and mind bending stories,” said Dawn Olmstead, Universal Cable Productions’ Executive Vice President of Development, in a statement. “Their brand has conquered multiple media platforms and boasts iconic books that have attracted the highest level of writers. It’s going to be a wild and imaginative ride.”

This new slate of potential television productions will join UCP’s current slate of SF and Fantasy projects, which includes: Childhood’s End,’ ‘Brave New World,’ ‘The Magicians,’ Wes Craven’s ‘The People Under The Stairs’ and ‘We Are All Completely Fine.’
