The Hollywood Reporter caught up with the Turner Entertainment chief creative officer Kevin Reilly following his presentation at the Television Critics Association press tour, where he spoke further on why TNT did not continue ahead with the drama based on Titans.
How much of the decision not to move forward with the DC Comics project Titans, also from Warner Bros., was based on the fact that you don’t own it?
It wasn’t. Akiva [Goldsman] is a talented guy, [but] the script just wasn’t there. There is an unbelievable glut of superhero things in the market right now and if you have a really good one, clearly people are up for it. But I just don’t think that there’s a need for one that, for me, at least on paper didn’t seem to be screaming to get made.
