The film Constantine was very good in my opinion but will it translate to TV? NBC is hoping so and their chairman discussed the upcoming show and what we can expect from it.
Here’s NBC chairman Robert Greenblatt on the network’s Constantine tv series that was recently ordered to pilot [via IGN]. Said Greenblatt, “I don’t know the DC comic very well, but there is dark, interesting stuff in it, but it’s also got some witty banter. It’s a fun tone, although the supernatural stuff is scary.”
And on the ever-present question of crossover potential with the other DC shows (Arrow and Flash on CW, Gotham on Fox), Greenblatt would only say, “Cross-network is really hard. It’s hard enough to do it within your network. I think let us see how the pilot goes before we answer that question!”
David Goyer (Batman vs Superman) and Daniel Cerone (Dexter, The Mentalist) are executive producing the project for NBC. Stay tuned to find out if Constantine gets a full season order or ends up like the peacock network’s last DC Comics project (Wonder Woman) which never made it past the pilot stage.
Here’s hoping we get some good things from Constantine in the future.
