Considering they already released a promo image for it, it’s no surprise that NBC has given its “Constantine” pilot a series order. Now, if only they’d announce “Hannibal’s” renewal, it would be a perfect day!
“Constantine” — from executive producers Daniel Cerone and David S. Goyer and director Neil Marshall — stars Matt Ryan as John Constantine. The series will follow enigmatic and irreverent Liverpool con-man-turned-occult-detective John Constantine, who is reluctantly thrust into the role of defending our world against dark forces from beyond.
Along with the pickup news, NBC released a new image from the pilot featuring Ryan and Lucy Griffiths (“True Blood”) as Liv.
Featured in hundreds of comic book issues, John Constantine has been a DC Comics staple since his first appearance as a supporting character in Swamp Thing in 1985. The character was subsequently featured in his own bestselling Hellblazer and Constantine comic book series.
The “Constantine” pilot was executive produced by Daniel Cerone (“The Mentalist,” “Dexter”) and David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight films, Man of Steel). Neil Marshall (The Descent, “Game of Thrones”) directed from a teleplay by Daniel Cerone with story by Daniel Cerone and David S. Goyer.
“Constantine” is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Warner Bros. Television.
Look for lots more soon!
