Kevin Smith is working on a new BBC America series based on two popular Spawn characters.
Deadline reports Smith is attached to direct, write, and executive produce a show about Sam and Twitch. Created by Tod McFarlane, the two characters are NYPD homicide detectives who first made their debut in the Spawn comics helping out the titular anti-hero. Due to their popularity, they eventually received their own comic book series where the duo go up against an occult and try to solve several grizzly crimes.
“I bumped into Kevin Smith at Sundance and he is beyond himself excited about this, about the show,” said BBC America and GM Sarah Barnett.
