IDW Entertainment has announced two wins in the TV space with USA picking up an adaptation of its comic book series "Brooklyn Animal Control," and SyFy signing on for the new live-action series "Wynonna Earp."

USA Network has picked up the pilot for "Brooklyn Animal Control," which is based on the IDW Publishing comic book and is being co-produced by Universal Cable Productions and IDW Entertainment. The comic book was created by JT Petty (

Splinter Cell

) who is also writing the TV series and will executive produce the project.

"Brooklyn Animal Control" follows the inner workings of a secret subdivision of the NYPD that functions as social services for some of the city’s most unique citizens–werewolves.  

In other news, Syfy has acquired the U.S. rights to "Wynonna Earp," a live-action television series based on the IDW Publishing comic of the same name that is being produced by Seven24 Films and IDW Entertainment.

With an initial order of 13 one-hour episodes, "Wynonna Earp" is a contemporary

thriller that follows Wyatt Earp’s great-granddaughter as she battles demons and other supernatural beings. The series is scheduled to premiere in April 2016 with production slated to begin in August. 

“'Wynonna Earp' is a unique contemporary western that will bring high-octane, full-throttle, supernatural action to Syfy,” says Chris Regina, senior vice president, programming, Syfy. “It is wildly imaginative, and we are excited to work with Seven24 Films, IDW Entertainment and Emily on this truly original concept that will showcase fun, stylized visuals and pure escapism.”
