Heavy Metal Studios, Irony Point’s Daniel Powell, and Bardel Entertainment are teaming up to bring Dan Fogler‘s Moon Lake to screens.
The horror comic anthology is known for telling scary and funny stories around the titular lake, itself infused with lunar radiation. Deadline reports its TV form will be a 30-minute animated anthology hosted by The Man in the Moon, a human literally holding an alien invasion at bay by keeping the extraterrestrials entertained with grim, funny, and horrific tales.
“I am over the moon, pun totally intended, to be adapting my graphic novel series, Moon Lake,” Fogler said in a statement. “It’s a dream collaboration. We promise to make you laugh and freak you out well into the afterlife, with the finest voice talent in the business.” Fogler will serve as an executive producer along with Powell, Tommy Coriale, Matthew Medney, Tina Chow and Richard Grieve.
As with all recent film and television announcements, it is unclear how long it will take for Moon Lake to reach screens, but we’ll keep an eye out for it.
