I’ve seen a couple of reports of this over the last 12 hours, and it looks like TNT is looking to develop a live-action drama based on DC Comics’ Teen Titans.

There are a couple of things that may make this a possibility in the future:

  1. Comic book properties are a big deal right now, so a network that nabs one of these has a very good chance of seeing their numbers jump.
  2. The most recent Teen Titans action we’ve seen has been the Teen Titans GO series on Cartoon Network, which is owned by Turner Broadcasting.  Perhaps there is some deal in place that allow the network to have a first look at anything having to do with the property.

Unlike another rumor that circulated earlier this week, the Titans series on TNT makes a lot more sense and has a bigger grounding in reality, especially when one considers the WB has been doing a better than average job when it comes to taking its properties to television.

According to an article at Variety, Akiva Goldsman and Marc Haimes will serve as the executive producer and co-executive producer, under the Warner Horizon Television shingle.

    I think they might not even have an issue with TTG being aired on CN. Every so often, you’ll see shows from one Turner station airing on another (such as “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” first season airing a few times on other Turner networks a week or two after the initial CN run). A lot of other stations that are owned by a parent company do the same, so it might just be a matter of which network seems the best fit or has an available time slot.

    I’d be so happy if this happened. I always loved the Marv Wolfman and George Perez comics. I’m sure it’d be nothing like that….but one can hope.
