BBC America has announced that Kevin Smith has signed on to write, direct, and executive produce a TV series based on the Image Comics title “Sam and Twitch”.
The characters were first introduced in the Spawn comics, a pair of homicide detectives were so popular they got their own title in 1999 which explores how they solve occult-related crimes in a dark and violent version of New York City.
BBC America president Sarah Barnett says Smith is “beyond himself excited” about the series which will have both a crime-of-the-week format, and season-long storylines.
It’s not clear if “Spawn” creator Todd McFarlane is involved in the series or if there’s any involvement of other characters from the “Spawn” universe. No production timetable has yet been scheduled either.
Both characters were previously brought to the screen on HBO’s “Spawn” animated series which is currently available on HBO Now.Source: Deadline

*This post is full of Star Wars spoilers for everything from Episode 1 thru The Force Awakens.
The time comes in every child’s life when they are officially initiated into the world of Star Wars. For some it’s as early as birth but for others, like in our family.. you must be ready to receive and ask for it of your own free will. Until then, the truth is shrouded in secrecy.
If you know anything about me, you know I am a fierce protector of storyline when it comes to any film or book series. Maintaining that secrecy for those who have not seen/read them yet is important to me, especially when it comes to my children and Star Wars. It becomes a secret much like Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy – something you keep safe until the time is right.
Some of you may remember the decision we made to hold off on allowing our children to see any of the Star Wars stories/cartoons or short films that gave away those secrets out of context. You may also remember last January when we unknowingly walked into a 20 minute show that gave away every secret of the entire series and I was LIIIIVVVVIIID because there was zero signage to warn people. You can read about that here if you want.
Well, we’ve moved forward and now is the time.
Fans freaked out last year when Cartoon Network announced Genndy Tartakovsky’s cult-fave series would be coming back with an all-new fifth season. We haven’t known just when those episodes would start rolling out but the network just told everyone in its own inimitable style.
There’ve been promises of a moody, upscaled arc for the show’s return, which makes the wait for its signature blend of stylized action, samurai stoicness and scifi weirdness even harder.
