TELEVISION: The Spectre prepping for television series
According to Deadline, Fox has purchased the rights to DC Comics’ The Spectre character for possible development as a television series. The series would be produced by Warner Bros. TV.
The Spectre, which has received a script commitment, centers on a former cop serving time in afterlife limbo who hunts down earthly criminals on behalf of the dead — and mortals soon to be dead if ultimate justice is not served.
Now before you get too excited, remember that Fox also purchased the rights for IDW Publishing’s Locke & Key, and we all saw how that turned out.
