NBC’s ‘Constantine’ TV Series Gets Official Pilot Order

Constantine TV Series NBC Hellblazer David S Goyer Pilot Order
DC Comics

Just hours after FOX further enticed DC fans with details of its forthcoming ‘Gotham‘ TV series, another dark DC hero has gained momentum with his own TV adaptation. NBC’s David S. Goyer-produced ‘Constantine‘ TV series has been given an official pilot order, getting us one step closer to the ‘Hellblazer’ adaptation we’ve always wanted to see.

NBC’s new take on ‘Constantine’ will be written and executive produced by ‘The Mentalist’ executive producer Daniel Cerone along with DC feature writer Goyer, whose resume includes everything from Christopher Nolan‘s ‘Dark Knight‘ trilogy to ‘Man of Steel‘ and ‘Batman Vs. Superman.’

Discounting Keanu Reeves‘ earlier adaptation of the character, the new version boasts a logline that claims to follow “master of the occult” John Constantine as he struggles with his faith and past sins, before being thrust into the role of defending humanity from the gathering forces of darkness. The original John Constantine first appeared in 1985, created by Alan Moore, Steve Bissette and Jamie Delano, and was designed blond, British, and with a chain-smoking appearance likened to Police frontman Sting.

FOX had its own unexpected success with the occult in ‘Sleepy Hollow,’ but will NBC audiences accept Goyer’s ‘Constantine’ as is? Will the character end up more Americanized, as before? Check out the previous version’s trailer below, and give us your thoughts in the comments!
