NBC Orders CONSTANTINE Pilot

Awhile back we reported that a Constantine TV show was in the “script stages” of development. Now it seems NBC is moving forward and ordering a pilot for the concept. Read on for the goods.

The news about the show came our way in September but now Deadline is reporting that NBC has ordered a pilot for Constantine, based on the DC Comics/Vertigo character.

dc-comics-constantine-issue-1bWritten by David S. Goyer (Batman Begins, Man of Steel) and Daniel Cerone (The Mentalist), it’s thought that the new series will use the character’s “New 52” series as its basis.

Created by Alan Moore, John Constantine, a roguish magician/detective/conman, first appeared during the author’s run on “Swamp Thing” in 1985, receiving his own series, “Hellblazer,” under DC’s Vertigo imprint in 1988. That book ran for 300 issues before it was relaunched in DC’s “New 52” continuity as “Constantine” with a younger take on the antihero.

The Constantine character was also brought to the big screen with a 2005 film directed by Francis Lawrence and starring Keanu Reeves.

The series joins “Arrow,” “The Flash,” and “Gotham” as another DC comics-based television series.
