The comic book creator is developing a live-action TV series based on Sam and Twitch, two detectives that first appeared in the pages of Spawn No. 1 in 1992 and then became stars of their own book. McFarlane is making the series with indie studio wiip. "No studio or streamer is attached to Sam and Twitch, but it comes as McFarlane is mulling shopping a Spawn shared universe around Hollywood," reports The Hollywood Reporter's Aaron Couch. "It’s very early days, and he has only begun conversations with his agents. But McFarlane believes he is in a unique position to offer something with a track record built over decades and which has grown to include hundreds of characters and sold hundreds of millions of books."
