New Constantine TV Pilot Greenlit by NBC

Icon-TV-150The news is now nearly a week old, but still worth noting amid the frenetic controversy around the new Batman TV show, Gotham. But Deadline announced at the same time was the news that NBC had greenlit a TV pilot  for a Constantine TV show.

“It is written/executive produced by The Mentalist executive producer Daniel Cerone and David S. Goyer, the go-to writer for Warner Bros.’ feature DC adaptations.

The two are executive producing, with Cerone serving as showrunner.”

In the days of the deserved success of shows like Arrow, and American Horror Story, I think the time could be right for a Hellblazer TV show. But, as ever, it depends on how it’s adapted. Will it be a Vertigo Constantine on, or a New 52 one? Or will we have another version of Keanustine?

Either way, it’ll be interesting to see what happens with it. I certainly wish I was writing it.
