The Other Dead Animal Zombie Series Headed To Animal Planet



Animal Planet is branching its brand out -- to zombies.

The animal zombie comic book from IDW Publishing, The Other Dead, is currently being developed to air as a scripted series on Animal Planet in 2016.

Variety reports the series will be set in Louisiana during the "next Hurricane Katrina" and revolves around a world of undead animals and unrelenting storms.

Here's the description for the comic book as well:

The world’s first Zombie Animal epic is here! A deadly hurricane threatens New Orleans just as a frightening and mysterious outbreak hits the animal kingdom! Join all-star creators Kevin Eastman (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), Joshua Ortega (Gears of War), and Digger T. Mesch (Agent 88) for the beginning of this year’s most anticipated new horror series! With art by rising star Qing Ping Mui, The Other Dead is destined to be the most talked-about zombie book since The Walking Dead!
