That’s the report from Deadline late Thursday, as the DC Comics young team of heroes is “nearing a pilot order” at cable network TNT. The project is written by Akiva Goldsman. The writer is an Academy Award winner, but also has a dubious history with DC Comics as the writer of Batman Forever and Batman & Robin.
His TV history is more limited, with Fringe as his only TV writing credit. The show would reportedly star Dick Grayson as Nightwing, and the report name-dropped Starfire and Raven as other characters tapped for the show. DC Entertainment has, at various times, had both Dick Grayson and Raven series in the works, so this would likely replace both of those.
Geoff Johns confirmed the show is in the works on his personal twitter account, but offered no details beyond the initial report.
