HBO Max Orders Three New Series Including Series Based on DC Characters Of 'Justice League Dark'


Recommended Posts

HBO Max today announced it has given production commitments for three new high-octane one-hour dramas from J.J. Abrams and Katie McGrath’s Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television Group, marking the first new Bad Robot–produced television projects for HBO Max under the exclusive, wide-ranging content collaboration partnership formed by Bad Robot with HBO Max parent company WarnerMedia in fall 2019.

The first series, “Duster,” is to be co-written by J.J. Abrams and LaToya Morgan. Set in the 1970s Southwest, the life of a gutsy getaway driver for a growing crime syndicate goes from awful to wildly, stupidly, dangerously awful. Morgan is currently a writer on “The Walking Dead.” Previously, she was a co-executive producer and writer of AMC’s “Into the Badlands” and “TURN: Washington’s Spies,” and was a writer for NBC’s “Parenthood” and Showtime’s “Shameless,” produced by Warner Bros. Television.

The second series, “Overlook,” is a horror-thriller inspired by and featuring iconic characters from Stephen King’s masterpiece “The Shining.” “Overlook” explores the untold terrifying stories of the most famous haunted hotel in American fiction. The project reunites Bad Robot, King and WBTV, who previously collaborated on the acclaimed psychological-horror series “Castle Rock” for Hulu.

The third will be a major series based on DC characters in the “Justice League Dark” Universe, details to be revealed soon.

“What an amazing start to our association with the wildly imaginative Bad Robot team under J.J. and Katie,” said Kevin Reilly, Chief Content Officer, HBO Max and President, TNT, TBS, & truTV. “What could be better than an original J.J. idea and then Warner Bros. letting them loose on iconic I.P. from Stephen King and the DC Universe and to provide more must-have programming on HBO Max.”

All of the HBO Max series will be executive produced by Bad Robot’s J.J. Abrams and its Head of Television, Ben Stephenson. Rachel Rusch Rich, Bad Robot’s Executive Vice President of Television, will serve as a co-executive producer. Warner Bros. International Television Distribution will be the global distributor for the programs.

I guess this means that rumor of the Justice League Dark movie that's been in development hell for so long going to Scott Derrickson was exactly that.  J.J. Abrams has no %&*@ing business having anything to do with Justice League: Dark or The Shining. 
I'm glad there's gonna be a Shining prequel though.  God knows that anything that has some mystery to it needs to have every bit of that drained from it along with all appeal and interest. 🙄  I can't wait to find out how exactly why that one guy put on a bear suit to go blow that other guy and how they died.
