Warner Bros Television have announced a script-to-series order for the one-hour, live-action drama “Swamp Thing” at DC Universe, the upcoming DC digital service which launches later this year.
“Swamp Thing” is targeted for a 2019 launch, only on DC Universe.
Executive producers are James Wan, Mark Verheiden, Gary Dauberman, and Michael Clear with Verheiden and Dauberman on scripting duties.
When CDC researcher Abby Arcane returns to her childhood home of Houma, Louisiana, in order to investigate a deadly swamp-borne virus, she develops a surprising bond with scientist Alec Holland – only to have him tragically taken from her. But as powerful forces descend on Houma, intent on exploiting the swamp’s mysterious properties for their own purposes, Abby will discover that the swamp holds mystical secrets, both horrifying and wondrous – and the potential love of her life may not be dead after all.
Been developing this “vegetarian hero” for awhile now 🙂 With a great team. Happy to finally share. Expect — mood, mystery, gothic romance, and swamp monsters! https://t.co/WbZ9Lb6iBR
