Executive Vice President at IDW Entertainment, Paul Davidson shared their excitement in a press release, saying:
“We couldn’t be more excited to be working with the entire IDW team, who are exquisitely talented, collaborative, and as charming as we are,” Silverstein and Jeser said. “We appreciate being given the opportunity to fail and we truly look forward to doing just that.
Working in tandem with our colleagues at every level within our Entertainment and Publishing divisions brings a wealth of opportunities for writers, producers, and other creatives to develop projects across various verticals simultaneously. It’s an ideal landscape for a creator’s vision to be realized.”
Nachie Marsham, a publisher for IDW also praised the partnership, saying:
“At IDW, we are perfectly poised to develop properties that live in the same universe, across various platforms. We’re thrilled that our first Entertainment and Publishing co-development project is with Matt and Dave; their comedic talent is off-the-charts. We know their vast background, combined with IDW’s robust expertise, will produce great content, both in print and on-screen.”
IDW has been making many moves to expand its television projects with five animated projects announced in the last month. These projects include The Delicacy, Dark Spaces: Wildfire, Brutal Nature, Rivers, and Ballad for Sophie while also working on bringing live-action adaptation to television with the recent announcement of Surfside Girls and also Locke & Key that just recently wrapped up at Netflix.
