With the vast success of THE WALKING DEAD, it comes as no surprise that AMC and Robert Kirkman are joining forces for another series. But this time, it will not be zombie related.

AMC and Kirkman announced today that they will begin development on THIEF OF THIEVES, based on the comic created by Kirkman. The comic, which just published its first issue in February, focuses on master thief Conrad Paulson who, while attempting to reconcile with his estranged wife and son, vows to walk the straight and narrow, only to discover he's completely addicted to the thrill of stealing. Now he must feed his addiction by stealing only what has been stolen, as the “Thief of Thieves.”

According to Kirkman: Much like THE WALKING DEAD brought horror to television in a unique and groundbreaking way, I feel THIEF OF THIEVES can do the same thing for heist stories, showing the humanity of all the characters, including the criminals.

While Kirkman created THIEF OF THIEVES, a different head writer takes over each story arc. Kirkman still writes every issue of THE WALKING DEAD.

Every series AMC has broadcast has been excellent and rivals the quality often restricted to HBO and Showtime. No start date was given for the new show, but expect that AMC will give it at least a full season order.

Sooooo, it's like Dexter but with thieves instead of killers.

Could be good.

Dexter Lite?

I'm not familiar with this series.. he only steals from thieves? Kinda sounds like Dexter, who only kills killers. But anything from AMC and Kirkman sounds great to me, I look forward to it!

Sweet!

Although Kirkman doesn't officially write this series, Nick Spencer does. He did create it and plots it though. Good for Kirkman. Now give me an Invincible cartoon on FX!

AMC can do no wrong, except for The Killing. I'll just forget about that
