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.
