In one of her first projects as a producer, former HBO entertainment president Sue Naegle has come on board Outcast, the exorcism drama project from The Walking Dead‘s Robert Kirkman. In his pilot writing debut, Kirkman penned Outcast on spec for The Walking Dead international partner Fox International Channels, which developed the project internally before taking it out. I hear Naegle, who was still at HBO at the time, read the script and recommended it to her colleague Kary suenaegleAntholis, whose team had already been actively pursuing it. Naegle has a relationship with Kirkman. She is known for her love for supernatural and horror fare and is a fan of Kirkman’s graphic novel The Walking Dead. As an HBO development executive, she went aggressively after the property and had talks with Kirkman.
