"We are thrilled to partner with Netflix to bring the multifaceted world that Jonathan Maberry created to audiences worldwide". 1-800-Missing creators William Laurin and Glenn Davis will serve as showrunners. The pickup comes as IDW's Locke and Key is being shopped to other streaming outlets, among others, as the company looks to find a new home for the Carlton Cuse drama based on Joe Hill's beloved comic series.
