IDW Entertainment is a new studio launched in November 2013 to finance the development and production of television adaptations based on IDW Publishing’s extensive catalog. With development and production funding, IDW Entertainment controls the development & packaging outside of the traditional studio/network system bringing fully packaged projects with deficit financing to networks in order to secure straight-to-series commitments.
IDW Entertainment develops, finances, and produces content based on IDW’s huge collection of existing Intellectual Properties. A key focus for the division is to capitalize on the growing trend of television series based on comics and graphic novels. IDW Entertainment will work with Broadcast and Cable networks as well as major digital platforms.
