Amazon Studios Orders Animated ‘Invincible’

Based on the Comic Book Series of the Same Name

Amazon Studios has greenlit the hour-long animated series “Invincible” from writer Robert Kirkman (“The Walking Dead,” “Oblivion Song”) co-creator Cory Walker and artist Ryan Ottley. Based on the comic book series of the same name, the eight-episode series will premiere globally on Amazon Prime Video in over 200 countries and territories.
 
The logline: “Invincible” is an adult animated superhero show that revolves around Mark Grayson, a normal teenager except for the fact that his father is the most powerful superhero on the planet. Shortly after his 17th birthday, Mark begins to develop powers of his own and enters into his father’s tutelage. The series is suspenseful, action-filled, and emotion-packed, yet builds upon poignant and heartwarming moments of love, friendship, and humanity. 
 
“Invincible” is produced by Skybound, with Simon Racioppa (“Teen Titans”) serving as showrunner. The series is executive produced by Kirkman, Racioppa, David Alpert (“The Walking Dead,” “Fear the Walking Dead”), Catherine Winder (“The Angry Birds Movie,” “Star Wars: The Clone Wars”) with Supervising Directors Justin & Chris Copeland (“Avengers Assemble,” “Ultimate Spider-Man”). “Invincible,” Kirkman’s second-longest comic-book series, concluded in February 2018 after a 15-year run. The full series is available across 23 countries and in eight languages and is also currently in development separately as a feature-length movie.
