NBC eyes drama about DC Comics' John Constantine

Another DC Comics title has the potential to end up on the fall 2014 schedule.

NBC has ordered a script from Warner Bros. TV that’s based upon the DC Comics anti-hero John Constantine, an enigmatic and irreverent con man-turned-reluctant supernatural detective who is thrust into the role of defending citizens against dark forces.

Genre uber-writer David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight Rises, Man of Steel) will executive produce with Daniel Cerone (The Mentalist). NBC has to greenlight a pilot before the concept has a chance to make it onto the fall 2014 schedule.

John Constantine served as the lead in the comics Hellblazer and Constantine.
