Dick Wolf, D.J. Caruso, and J.H. Wyman are teaming up to bring the Johnny Dynamite graphic novel to television.

In the TV take, ex-cop Dynamite travels to Las Vegas in search of his missing girlfriend, only to discover that Satan is living there, buying and selling souls. Project marks a major creative departure for “Law & Order” boss Wolf.

But the skein will have a bit of a procedural element as Dynamite ends up getting involved in the lives of those unfortunate souls who’ve been touched by the devil. A continuing theme of the series will be Dynamite’s search for his g.f.

The trio hope to use the same greenscreen technology used in the movie 300, because according to the producers the show wouldn’t be able to shoot in traditional locations. While it may seem like a good idea, the costs of doing a full greenscreen television show each week could actually be more expensive than shooting on location.

Right now the production only includes the pilot, with hopes it will be picked up for a full season.
