The world of Judge Dredd is coming to the small screen as IM Global and games developer and publisher Rebellion have announced a partnership to make the comic series come to life.
Set in a future where east coast America has become a crowded and crime-ridden megalopolis, the show will be an ensemble drama about a team of Judges – futuristic cops invested with the power to be judge, jury, and executioner – as they deal with the challenges the future-shocked 22nd Century throws at them.
While no one has been cast for series, we should find out who will play characters later this year.
I am interested in seeing how this plays out, especially since we have seen futuristic tales on Syfy and other networks. The most interesting thing will be if we actually get Judge Dredd in the show, or if the “team of Judges” will focus on others from the Judge Dredd Universe.
