A while back it was announced that Warner Bros. and HBO had made a deal similar to in making DC Comics imprints television series and the first project to be green-lit by HBO’s sister channel Cinemax has started with The Boys.
The news was first released by ComicBook.com that Garth Ennis and Darick Robertsons next adaptation of The Boys, which originally ran under Dynamite Entertainment before going to DC Comics imprint Wildstorm, had been picked up by Cinemax, making it the first project from DC Comics’ lesser known label Wildstorm to be green-lit. The series is being adapted by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the same team behind the adapted of Preacher for AMC.
Another show-runner includes Eric Kripke (Supernatural), who is also directing the pilot based on the script by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.
If proven successful, it’ll be great to see if a Before Watchmen series can be added to HBO or Cinemax’s list or maybe a new Constantine series with Matt Ryan as those franchises would work great on a network with no limitations.
