When DC Universe, the upcoming DC digital service launches, we’ll get a live action Titans series, the third series of Young Justice, a Harley Quinn series, and the just-announced Swamp Thing live-action drama series.
When CDC researcher Abby Arcane returns to her childhood home of Houma, Louisiana, in order to investigate a deadly swamp-borne virus, she develops a surprising bond with scientist Alec Holland — only to have him tragically taken from her. But as powerful forces descend on Houma, intent on exploiting the swamp’s mysterious properties for their own purposes, Abby will discover that the swamp holds mystical secrets, both horrifying and wondrous — and the potential love of her life may not be dead after all.
Based on the characters created by Len Wien and Bernie Wrightson, the script-to-series order will be written by Mark Verheiden and Gary Dauberman, with Rob Hackett of Atomic Monster serving as Co-Producer of the series. James Wan (Atomic Monster), Mark Verheiden, Gary Dauberman, Michael Clear (Atomic Monster) will Executive Produce.
The Swamp Thing series is looking to launch in 2019.
