Based on the wildly popular comic book series "Hellblazer" from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine is armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and a wickedly naughty wit. He fights the good fight - or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he's decided to abandon his campaign against evil until a series of events thrusts him back into the fray when an old friend's daughter becomes the target of superhuman forces.

Whoever you are, I'm a nasty piece of work! Ask anybody.
The ending of the original version of the pilot (which was leaked onto the web) differs in a number of ways from the transmitted one, mostly to accommodate the removal of Liv from the series, after the writers decided that she was too passive a character:
- In the transmitted pilot, the demon possessing the security guard ultimately takes the form of Constantine himself; in the original pilot, he retained the security guard's body.
- In the original pilot, Constantine asked Ritchie to drive Liv to a crime scene in order to galvanize her desire to help him. In the transmitted version he does it to scare her off, or at least to warn her of the dangers she faces.
- In the original pilot Liv does not return the amulet to John, nor does she mark on the map where other events are likely to take place.
