Swamp Thing: TV Series In Development For DC Universe


The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that DC Comics character Swamp Thing is being developed into a television series for DC Entertainment’s digital service DC Universe.

The Swamp Thing series follows what happens when CDC researcher Abby Arcane returns to her childhood home of Houma, Louisiana, in order to investigate a deadly swamp-borne virus. There, she develops a surprising bond with scientist Alec Holland, only to have him tragically taken from her. But as powerful forces descend on Houma, intent on exploiting the swamp’s mysterious properties for their own purposes, Abby will discover that the swamp holds mystical secrets, both horrifying and wondrous, and the potential love of her life may not be gone after all.

 

Swamp Thing first appeared in comics back in the early 1970’s, created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson, which gained popularity during that time up till the 1990’s, spawning a 1982 feature film from Wes Craven, a television series in the early 90’s and a video game for NES and Game Boy in 1992.

 

The drama has been given a script-to-series order and Mark Verheiden and Gary Dauberman are attached to co-write the script and serve as showrunners and executive producers for the live-action drama if it gets a straight-to-series order. James Wan will be serving as executive producer alongside Michael Clear under Atomic Monster banner, with Rob Hackett serving as a co-executive producer.
