Singer-songwriter Lights‘ graphic comic series Skin&Earth is hitting the small screen.
The first six issues of the post-apocalyptic series, which serves as a companion piece to Lights’ 2017 album of the same name, will be adapted for television and digital and gaming content, Entertainment One (eOne) announced on Tuesday (July 17). The project will be produced by Andrew Lazar of Mad Chance Productions.
“Music has always been a visual thing to me, so writing and drawing the Skin&Earth comics, which tie cohesively with the music, was an obvious move for me as an artist,” Lights said in a statement. “That then led to bringing the characters and story to life in other ways like in my music videos, interactive Instagram accounts and graphic novel and on stage in my live show. Now that those floodgates are open, I am beyond excited to explore my relationship with eOne and introducing the characters and ethos of Skin&Earth to new audiences.”
“Been trying to hold this in for a while. Here comes the next phase of Skin&Earth,” the singer also tweeted.
“Our music team continually scans the horizon for artists that can truly tap into everything that, as a global entertainment company, we can offer,” eOne’s Chris Taylor, Global President, Music, added. “This deal between Lights and our television division is what we are all about. Our multi-layered collaboration is incredibly exciting and we are looking forward to having a front row seat as Lights takes that next step on her Skin&Earth journey.”
Lights will also be appearing at San Diego Comic-Con this Friday and Saturday (July 20-21).
