Lights’ graphic novel series Skin&Earth is set to be adapted for television and digital content.
According to Billboard, Entertainment One (eOne) announced it is moving forward with an adaptation of the first six issues of the comic. Additionally, it was revealed Andrew Lazar from Mad Chance Productions, who previously worked Space Cowboys and American Sniper, has signed on as producer.
The Canadian singer-songwriter released her most recent album, Skin&Earth, in September of 2017. The record works in tandem with the comic, which is set in a post-apocalyptic world run by the Tempest Corporation and follows the adventures of Enaia Jin.
Lights recently spoke about the symbiotic relationship between the two projects, saying, “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.”
The artist goes on to say, “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.”
Alternative Press reports eOne’s Chris Taylor, Global President, Music says of the upcoming project, “Our music team continually scans the horizon for artists that can truly tap into everything that, as a global entertainment company, we can offer.”
Taylor adds, “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.”
