Universal Cable Productions has announced plans to adapt Image Comics title “Ice Cream Man” into a TV series, the announcement following in the wake of their success with the “Happy!” adaptation for Syfy and the upcoming “Umbrella Academy” series for Netflix.
W. Maxwell Prince’s comic is a horror-fantasy anthology series presented by its omnipresent narrator, the Ice Cream Man. Weaving a dark tapestry of tales from his truck, the Ice Cream Man peels back the layers of the suburban American psyche with stories that always end with a macabre twist.
Max and Adam Reid (“Sneaky Pete”) will write the adaptation and executive produce alongside Chris Bender, Jake Weiner and Jake Wagner. The project will be shopped to premium cable and streaming services.
