J.J. Abram’s Bad Robot production company has set up its first three series for HBO Max, and it includes a series based on Justice League Dark.
Abrams has been at work for some time now setting up projects at HBO Max, and it was heavily suspected that a DC series would be in the mix. On Thursday, three series were announced, and one of them will be taking on the mystical side of the DC universe.
The untitled drama series will be based on Justice League Dark, but it is unknown what elements it will be folding in. There are also no indications of which characters may be used. While Constantine is one of the best-known characters to be included in the property, he is also currently being used by Legends of Tomorrow.
The other two series coming from Bad Robot will be Overlook, a spinoff from Stephen King’s The Shining, and Duster, a 1970’s series about a getaway driver.
“What an amazing start to our association with the wildly imaginative Bad Robot team under J.J. and Katie,” said HBO Max chief content officer Kevin Reilly. “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.”
No word on potential debut dates for the series as of yet. This is one of several DC projects in the works at the upcoming streaming service with the most notable other property being a Green Lantern series.
