Peacock has ordered an adaptation of the DEAD DAY comic book series, which will be penned by THE VAMPIRE DIARIES vets Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson. The original comic was created by Ryan Parrott, who will consult on the TV show.

According to the streamer, “DEAD DAY follows an ensemble of characters as they navigate the annual ‘dead day,’ when for one night the dead come back to complete unfinished business — be that to celebrate a night back on earth or to torment the living.”

“DEAD DAY combines an exciting, high-concept premise with relatable characters and real emotion,” said Lisa Katz, president scripted content, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. “We jumped at the opportunity to work with Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson, who not only have tremendous individual track records with their high-quality storytelling, but have created magic together before.”

“Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson are each a powerhouse unto themselves, so we couldn’t have been more excited when they told us they wanted to team up again,” said Vivian Cannon, EVP, Drama Development, Universal Television. “DEAD DAY will be everything Julie and Kevin’s audiences love about their work—emotional, unexpected and totally bingeable!”

“We have been looking for a project to do together and DEAD DAY has all the ingredients we love as storytellers. Love, death, thrills and tears — and we know Susan Rovner and her team at Peacock is the perfect fit for this project,” said Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson.

“We realized because of DEAD DAY’s unique, universally appealing concept that this AfterShock Comic would capture the audience’s imagination worldwide. And none of this would be possible without this recognition from our amazing partners: Julie Plec, Kevin Williamson, Universal Television, Peacock and Ryan Parrott, the creator of Dead Day,” said AfterShock Media’s Lee and Jon Kramer
