J.J. Abrams is working on exciting new DC Comics series, which is heading to HBO Max!
THR is reporting that the prolific producer, director, and writer has three new series heading to the streaming service, including “an untitled drama based on characters in the so-called Justice League Dark universe.”
Some of the characters that are part of the Justice League Dark team include Zatanna, Deadman, Swamp Thing and John Constantine.
The other two series are crime drama called Duster and a spinoff to The Shining, which will be called Overlook.
All three of the series will be produced by Abrams, his wife and business partner Katie McGrath, and Bad Robot’s head of television Ben Stephenson. Bad Robot’s exec vp TV Rachel Rusch Rich will be a co-executive producer.
“What an amazing start to our association with the wildly imaginative Bad Robot team under J.J. and Katie,” HBO Max’s chief content officer Kevin Reilly said in a statement. “What could be better than an original J.J. idea and then Warner Bros. letting them loose on iconic IP from Stephen King and the DC Universe and to provide more must-have programming on HBO Max.”
