The former is "set in a reimagined Western landscape where America is divided into seven nations. This iconic science fiction series follows "Death" as he braves his fellow riders, monsters, and corrupt gunslingers in his quest to save his mortal family from the Apocalypse." The latter then is "a science fiction drama set in the near future. The show centers around a divorced couple, who ran rival major corporations, offering humans the ability to genetically and robotically enhance themselves." Nick Dragotta and J.M. Ringuet, their respective artists, will executive produce alongside Hickman, Kirkman, David Alpert, Sean Furst and Bryan Furst. Josh Adler also executive produces "Transhuman." Hickman will pen "East of West" while a writer is being determined for "Transhuman." (Deadline.com)

Sam Zvibleman co-created the project alongside Erskine and Konkle, who will likewise direct. Party Over Here's Becky Sloviter, Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone will also executive produce; as will Odenkirk Provissiero Entertainment's Marc Provissiero and Brooke Pobjoy; and Debbie Liebling and Gabe Liedman.
