DC and Vertigo comics character Lucifer lands pilot commitment at Fox

16 September 2014 11:04 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warner Bros. is showing no signs of slowing down when it comes to bringing DC Comics characters to the small screen, as Deadline is now reporting that Lucifer, a character who debuted in Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman and eventually got his own eponymous spin-off, has been given a pilot commitment at Fox.

Californication creator Tom Kapinos will write and produce the show, and if it gets picked up it will follow the titular Devil as he resigns his throne and abandons Hell in favor of the “gorgeous, shimmering insanity of Los Angeles, where he opens an exclusive piano bar called Lux.”

If picked up for series, Lucifer will join a handful of other DC Comics shows, including The CW’s Arrow, The Flash, and iZombie, NBC’s Constantine, and Fox’s Gotham, as well as in-development shows like Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler’s Supergirl, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s Preacher at AMC, »

DC Comics Character Lucifer Lands Pilot Commitment At Fox

16 September 2014 4:41 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fox executives must be pretty happy with what they’ve seen from Gotham so far, because they’ve given a pilot commitment to the DC and Vertigo Comics character Lucifer. According to Deadline, Californication creator and executive producer Tom Kapinos will write and produce the show.

For those unfamiliar, Lucifer Morningstar was a supporting character in Neil Gaiman’s Vertigo comic The Sandman, and eventually got his own spin-off written by Mike Carey. Based on the Devil, Lucifer one day abandons his job of ruling over Hell and instead adventures to Earth, Heaven, and other realms. The television series will stick pretty closely to the comics, as Deadline describes the approach to the series as follows:

“[The series] centers on Lucifer who, bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell, resigns his throne and abandons his kingdom for the gorgeous, shimmering insanity of Los Angeles, where he opens an exclusive piano bar called Lux. »

Everyone’s favorite “Robin,” Dick Grayson, might be coming back to television with his Teen Titan cohorts in a brand new television show.

The show is reportedly to be written by Akiva Goldsman and Marc Haimes, with Dick Grayson’s Nightwing at centre stage. Starfire and Raven would also feature in the show.

Robin) as he takes on a new moniker (Nightwing) and forms a superhero team boasting such characters as Raven and Starfire.

Akiva Goldsman’s Heading Up A (Teen) ‘Titans’/'Nightwing' DC Comics Show For TNT

11 September 2014 4:56 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Akiva Goldsman’s been trying to make a “Titans,” or “Teen Titans,” as they were originally called, movie for forever. In 2007, it was even announced that Goldsman, Academy-Award winning writer of “A Beautiful Mind” and director of 2014’s “Winter's Tale,” would be producing a live-action “Titans” movie. That obviously never happened, but Goldsman hasn't given up on the project, and now TNT is about to greenlight a pilot that could turn into a show. “The Teen Titans” began in 1964. They were essentially a super-team of sidekicks in a group that was like the Justice League Junior. The group were comprised of Robin, Kid Flash, Aqualad, Wonder Girl and Speedy, respective sidekicks to heroes Batman, Flash, Aquaman, Wonder Woman and Green Arrow. That novelty changed and gained respectability in the 1980s with the Marv Wolfman/George Perez comics team that cast them as misfit teens/20-somethings living bitterly in the shadows of their wards. »
