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.

  1. If FOX lets this pass, I’d love to see Syfy or even CW take it over. I’m not the biggest fan of the Spectre, but I like the character and concepts well enough that I think it could be a pretty good series with the right creative team behind it.
