Lucifer: season order and first image for comic adaptation

11 May 2015 12:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

British actor Tom Ellis will star in Fox’s Lucifer series, which has now received a full season order and a debut promo image…

If you still needed proof that Fox was investing hard in geeky telly (after their renewal of Gotham and the full season order they gave to Minority Report), here’s some more: the network has just ordered a full season of Lucifer.

Lucifer is a comic book adaptation, heralding from Vetigo, the same DC Comics imprint as Constantine (which contrastingly had its TV adptation cancelled recently).

This version of Satan was introduced by Neil Gaiman and Sam Kieth, in The Sandman comic series which is currently being adapted for film by Warner Bros, as a separate entity to this TV show. The character was so popular that he spawned his own on-going comic book run.

Now, Fox have given the green light to a TV version, »

First Look at DC's 'Lucifer' TV Show Starring Tom Ellis

9 May 2015 9:49 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A number of series are being canceled and renewed at this very second. New shows are also being announced as they get picked up for a series order by various networks. One of those shows, which we've heard quite a bit about in recent months, is Lucifer. Based on the DC Vertigo supernatural comic book, the show has been picked up at Fox. And today, we have a first look at Tom Ellis as the lead.

The news comes just one day after NBC officially announced that they have canceled another DC supernatural series, with Constantine now looking for a home elsewhere. The hope is to find digital distribution for Season 2. Will Lucifer have better luck finding an audience on Fox?

'Minority Report' and 'Lucifer' land Fox series orders

8 May 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Friday was a huge day for established, familiar properties.  ABC kicked off the morning by picking up "Uncle Buck," which was followed by Fox's order for "The Frankenstein Code" and then quickly by CBS' series orders for "Rush Hour," "Limitless" and a "Criminal Minds" spinoff. In what I'm assuming will be Friday's last piece of big, breaking news -- famous last words -- Fox has given series orders to "Minority Report" and "Lucifer," based on the hit Steven Spielberg/Tom Cruise feature and the DC/Vertigo comic title respectively.  Let's look at the details:  "Minority Report" was written by Max Borenstein and directed by Mark Mylod and features Spielberg and Amblin Television among its producers. It's set 10 years after the end of the Pre-Crime unit in DC and three remaining pre-cogs are struggling to integrate back into society. One of them meets a helpful detective and is able to find »

Gotham's Lesley-Ann Brandt Replaces Lina Esco As 'Maze' On Lucifer

17 March 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

According to THR, actress Lesley-Ann Brandt (who played Copperhead on Gotham) will replace Lina Esco as Maze on Fox's Lucifer pilot. This character was first introduced in the pages of Neil Gaiman's Sandman as Lucifer's right hand woman, who eventually follows him to Earth. She's described as "a fierce demon in the form of a beautiful young woman" on the show. The pilot will be directed by Len Wiseman (the Total Recall remake, Underworld), who will also executive produce along with Tom Kapinos, Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman. The original logline for the show was pretty similar to the comic series, and had Lucifer growing tired with his infernal responsibilities and relocating to La where he opened an exclusive piano bar called Lux. Now it seems it's "undergone an evolution toward a police procedural", with the character getting his kicks helping the Lapd punish criminals. Tom Ellis will »
