Live-action television adaptations of the Italian comic books Dylan Dog, Nathan Never, Mister No, Dampyr, Dragonero, Il Confine, and Martin Mystere are in the works from Bonelli Entertainment. First reported by Variety, the development company is a new subsidiary of Sergio Bonelli Editore, the comic publisher which publishes and owns the rights to those projects.

"Developing new ways for people to come in contact with our most popular and iconic characters and franchises as well as exclusive new shows - on the devices they choose - is one of our studio’s top priorities," company president Davide Bonelli. "We are investing in and creating original, high-quality shows including the new Dylan Dog series.”

Tiziano Sclavi's iconic Italian horror series Dylan Dog is in development as a 10-episode live-action television series. In 2011, Brandon Routh starred in a poorly-received film version titled Dylan Dog: Dead of Night.

Bonelli's various comics-to-TV adaptations are planned as part of a shared universe.
