Quibi to Adapt Horror Series ‘Ice Cream Man’

Upcoming streamer Quibi, which launches on April 6, has announced that UCP, a division of NBCUniversal Content Studios, is producing Image Comics’ comic book series “Ice Cream Man.” Max and Adam Reid (“Sneaky Pete”) will write and serve as executive producers. Chris Bender and Jake Weiner of Good Fear Content and Jake Wagner of Alibi will executive produce.

Based on the Image Comic created by W Maxwell Prince, “Ice Cream Man” is described as a horror-fantasy anthology series presented by its omnipresent narrator, the Ice Cream Man. Weaving a dark tapestry of tales from his truck, the Ice Cream Man serves up scoops of pain and suffering to the inhabitants of one suburb town for his own malevolent amusement. “Ice Cream Man” peels back the layers of the suburban American psyche with stories that are timeless yet current, relatable yet strange, equal parts terrifying and ironic, and always end with a macabre twist.
