· "We realized because of Dead Day's unique, universally appealing concept that this AfterShock Comic would capture the audience's imagination worldwide. And none of this would be possible without this recognition from our amazing partners: Julie Plec, Kevin Williamson, Universal Television, Peacock and Ryan Parrott, the creator of Dead Day," said AfterShock Media's Lee and Jon Kramer

· Plec is currently in production on Peacock's upcoming YA supernatural drama series VAMPIRE ACADEMY, which she co-created and is co-showrunning, based on the bestselling book series of the same name, and she is also executive producing the upcoming NBC series The Endgame, which premieres Feb 21st.
