According to Deadline, DC’s Deadman is headed to the small screen.
The project is about the spirit of a murdered man, Boston Brand, who lives on as he inhabits other people’s bodies and helps them solve crises in their own lives.
With Smallville off the air, it’s understandable that The CW and Warner Bros. TV is scrambling to find a superhero franchise to replace the ten-season long show. But Deadman? Surely they could have found something like Teen Titans, Nightwing, or Birds of Prey… okay, so maybe not that last one…
With Supernatural still a big hit (going into its seventh season), Deadman might actually be a natural fit for the network.
