HBO Max, WarnerMedia’s streaming platform, has just got a lot more interesting for DC Comics fans. According to a recent press release, J.J. Abrams’s Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television Group is working on a major series based on Justice League Dark – a shadowy version of the original team that comprises anti-heroes such as Swamp Thing and Constantine. There isn’t a synopsis yet, but we can assume that the show will lean heavily toward the supernatural.
Bad Robot and Warner Bros. are also working on two other shows: “Duster” and “Overlook.” The former is an original work, while the latter is a series set in the world that Stephen King developed for “The Shining.”
“The first series ‘Duster,’ is to be co-written by J.J. Abrams & LaToya Morgan. Set in the 1970’s Southwest, the life of a gutsy getaway driver for a growing crime syndicate goes from awful to wildly, stupidly, dangerously awful,” wrote WarnerMedia.
“The second series, ‘Overlook,’ is a horror-thriller series 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.”
