"Diabolik," "36," "Prisoners" Remake Planned

20 February 2014 5:49 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Three intriguing sounding series have been put into development.

First up, Sky Deutschland, Sky Italia and BSkyB are developing a ten-episode live-action series adaptation of hit Italian comic book "Diabolik".

The comic follows a master thief who steals from other criminals and can take on any identity he wishes. The property was previously adapted into Mario Bava's 1968 film "Danger: Diabolik".

Next, A&E Network is reportedly developing the high-concept drama series "The 36" from "Immortals" scribes Charley & Vlas Parlapanides. Michael London will produce.

The story is set in New York City, in a world of Biblical fallen angels (the Nephilim). These dark angels are only kept in check by The Righteous 36. The latter is a mystical Jewish concept which says that at all times there are 36 people in the world possessing special powers.

Finally remake rights to "Prisoners of War", the Israeli drama that was remade in the U.S. »

Rupert Murdoch’s European Payboxes Join Forces on ‘Diabolik’ TV Drama Series

20 February 2014 6:52 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Rome - Rupert Murdoch’s European pay-tv operations Sky Italia, Sky Deutschland and Blighty’s BSkyB have teamed up to co-produce drama series “Diabolik,” an adaptation of a popular Italian comic book about a master thief who takes on different identities and steals from other criminals.

The ten one-hour episode live-action series now in development marks the first joint project for the three European pay-tv platforms owned by 21st Century Fox, which are now in talks to select a showrunner.

Diabolik,” which was created by Italian sisters Angela and Luciana Giussani in 1962, is a longtime comic book hit in Italy where its 800th issue was published last year.

Dressed in a skintight black body suit, when not impersonating someone else with his set of lifelike masks, “Diabolik” is a quasi Robin Hood-like character who works with sexy partner, and lover, Eva Kant. Their arch-enemy is a square police inspector named Ginko. »
