Since Smallville is gone, I thought CW would get another STRONG DC comic show on the air. Well, they threw around 'The Graysons' and 'Raven', but the possible winner is... Deadman?
With Smallville ending its 10-season run this past May, the CW has made launching a new superhero franchise based on a DC property a priority. The network’s first effort this development season is Deadman, a drama based on the DC Comics books by Arnold Drake and Carmine Infantino, which will be written and executive produced by Supernatural creator Eric Kripke.Deadman? Nobody wants to see Deadman. Let's roll the dice again, please.
The project is about the spirit of a murdered man, Boston Brand, who lives on as he inhabits other people’s bodies and helps them solve crises in their own lives. It is produced by Warner Bros. TV, which handles the mining of the DC catalog for TV series.
