Spike’s '1000 Ways to Die' Gets Graphic Novel Treatment
The docuseries becomes the cable network's first property to get the comic treatment.
In a first for Spike, the cable network’s original series 1000 Ways to Die will get the graphic novel treatment.
The 200-page 1000 Ways to Die graphic novel, from Zenescope Entertainment and Original Productions, is timed to arrive in comic book stores in the fall when the docuseries that re-creates unusual deaths returns for its fourth season.
“1000 Ways to Die showcases some of the most outrageous true stories about those who succumbed to the grim reaper in the most unorthodox of styles,” said Thom Beers, CEO and executive producer at Original Productions, which produces the series. “Each case takes viewers through a fast-paced full re-enactment interlaced with dramatic witness testimonials, fun historical tidbits, scientific expert explanations and vibrant CGI effects reminiscent of classic comic books.”
Zenescope Entertainment is the publisher behind such graphic novels as Grimm Fairy Tales and Return to Wonderland.
Spike’s 1000 Ways to Die, created by Beers, is one of the cable network’s highest-rated original series on Spike.
“We’re thrilled to add another platform to one of the network’s most successful franchises, which is already a hit on television and online,” said Sharon Levy, executive vp original series at Spike TV.
