Hollywood’s desire for comic book properties shows no sign of slowing down. IDW Publishing today announced it’s spawning a new division, IDW Entertainment, to fund and develop new television properties based on its catalog of comic books and graphic novels. Entertainment industry vet David Ozer has been named president of the new division. Circle of Confusion, executive producer of AMC’s The Walking Dead, will oversee packaging and creative development and will executive produce the company’s projects. Properties first slated for development include Life Undead, Brooklyn Animal Control and V Wars. IDW Entertainment is repped in all areas by CAA.
