"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," Kirkman told The Hollywood Reporter. Kirkman is developing the project with Walking Dead producer David Alpert and writer/producer Charles H. Eglee, who worked on the first season of the zombie drama and wrote the pilot for FX's still in-development Powers series, based on Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming's long-running comic book series. Eglee would reportedly serve as showrunner if the show is picked up as a series. Inspired by his experience working in a writer's room for The Walking Dead TV series, Thief of Thieves is written by a group of writers, with Kirkman overseeing the process. Morning Glories writer Nick Spencer scripted the first arc. The series is illustrated by Shawn Martinbrough.
