Damian Kindler the multi talented writer and executive producer of such acclaimed series – Krypton , Sleepy Hollow, Sanctuary, Stargate SG1, Stargate Atlantis and numerous others, currently producing American Gods Season 3 , is now bringing to life, October Faction. Yes, the IDW Comic Book series by Steve Niles.
October Faction is debuting on Netflix this Thursday January 23 and you definitely have to see this. Netflix dropped one trailer and didn’t give the press not a glimpse of the first episode! So in my interview with Damian he goes into more detail of how he is bringing the series to life in the first 10 episodes . From casting J.C. MacKenzie and Tamara Taylor as the parents to naming The Agency. Take a listen and get ready to watch October Faction this Thursday.
Many thanks to Alissa Bremner from Scandal Co – Active and IDW Entertainment/Publishing for facilitating this interview.

Subsequently, Geoff and Viv’s lives are turned upside down when they discover their seemingly unremarkable insurance sales rep parents are, in fact, (spoiler alert!) trained assassins who hunt monsters.
