Reedus has teamed with Brillstein Entertainment’s JoAnne Colonna and former AMC VP of scripted Amanda Verdon to establish the company, Bigbaldhead Productions. The company has a two-year development deal agreed with AMC Studios.

Undone by Blood is from writers Zac Thompson and Lonnie Nadler (The Dregs, X-Men) and artist Sami Kivela (Abbot, Tommy Gun Wizards).

It is described as “a neo-western that depicts the hard truth of seeking vengeance in the real world.” Set in the 1970s, the story follows a woman who heads back to her hometown in Arizona to kill the man who murdered her family, with only an Old West gunslinger novel as her guide.

The deal to adapt the books for TV sees Reedus, Colonna and Verdon exec producing along with AfterShock president Lee Kramer and CEO Jon Kramer. Nadler and Thompson will be co-exec producers. Talks are underway for Reedus to also star.

LA-based Rive Gauche Television negotiated the deal on behalf of its subsidiary AfterShock Comics. “Undone by Blood is a great book from incredibly talented creators that we are very proud of,” said Jon Kramer, who is also CEO and chairman of Rive Gauche.

“Working together with Norman Reedus, and his talented team, JoAnne and Amanda from Bigbaldhead, to bring this book to the small screen will be a rewarding experience. We look forward to creating something very special.”

The deal comes after Sony Pictures acquired the film rights to upcoming AfterShock comic book series The Kaiju Score, from writer James Patrick (Grimm Fairy Tales) and artist Rem Broo (Terminal Protocol). Rive Gauche also brokered that deal.
