HBO has "very, very high hopes" for Damon Lindelof's Watchmen TV series. During a Television Critics Association event on Wednesday, HBO programming president Casey Bloy spoke briefly about the recently-filmed pilot and the chances for it getting the greenlight as a show.
“I have very, very high hopes,” Bloy said (as reported by Deadline). “They did a great job. Damon wrote a phenomenal script, and Nikki Kassell did an amazing job shooting the show. I think we see it in a few weeks. So, we’ll see.”
According to Deadline, HBO has not yet fully commited to a Watchmen series, but is waiting to review the pilot before making a decision.
