A TV show about DC Comics' conman-turned-supernatural detective John Constantine is currently in the works.
The comic book supernatural detective is set to have his own TV show.
NBC has ordered Constantine, a script about DC Comics conman-turned-supernatural detective John Constantine, from Dexter vet Daniel Cerone and The Dark Knight trilogy writer David S. Goyer.
The order comes with a penalty, meaning NBC will have to pay if it does not air a pilot. The one-hour drama comes from Warner Bros Television.
Goyer and Cerone, the showrunner on Season Two of Dexter, will write and executive produce. Constantine was created by Watchmen writer Alan Moore, as well as Steve Bissette and John Totleben, and debuted in the pages of Swamp Thing in 1985.
The character is the star of the comic books Hellblazer and Constantine, and was played by Keanu Reeves in the 2005 film Constantine. — Reuters
