‘Something is Killing the Children’ to be adapted as a series for Netflix

James Tynion IV’s and Werther Dell’Edera’s BOOM! series has been picked up by the streaming giant.

On Friday, Borys Kit of The Hollywood Reporter exclusively revealed that the BOOM! Studios horror comic Something is Killing the Children is being adapted as a series for Netflix.

Written by James Tynion IV and drawn by Werther Dell’Edera, Something is Killing the Children begins with kids going missing in the town of Archer’s Peak. Most never come back, but the few who do are haunted by memories of nightmarish creatures that only they can see.

Their only hope of stopping them lies with a mysterious stranger who not only sees what they can, but is on a mission to kill the monsters that are terrorizing them.

As far as the Netflix show is concerned, Trevor Macy and Mike Flanagan will executive produce and are currently co-writing the pilot. The pair previously adapted films from Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep and Gerald’s Game. Tynion IV and Dell’Edera will serve as executive producers on the series, as well.

Following the first episode, Macy is expected to take on the role of showrunner. Flanagan would likely direct some of the episodes, although Kit’s report states that this has yet to be confirmed.
