Peacock will not be moving forward with Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson’s comic book adaptation Dead Day despite a straight-to-series order, Deadline has confirmed.

The streamer ordered the series, from Universal Television earlier this year but it is now being shopped elsewhere after it was axed at Peacock, a source tells Deadline.

Dead Day, a TV adaptation of Ryan Parrott’s comic book of the same name, follows an ensemble of characters as they navigate the annual “dead day,” when for one night the dead come back to complete unfinished business — be that to celebrate a night back on earth or to torment the living.

As Deadline reported exclusively in December, the streamer is adjusting its development strategy for the next stage of its evolution, with a stronger emphasis on drama, led by eventized series, a focus on bingeable comedies as well as more true crime limited docu-series, and celebrity-driven shows on the unscripted side.
