Len Wiseman has signed on to direct the first episode of DC Universe's Swamp Thing, according to Deadline. Wiseman is scheduled to stay on the series as an executive producer - similiar to the directing/executive producing Wiseman did with Fox's The Gifted and Lucifer.
"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," reads the show's official description. "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."
Mark Verheiden and Gary Dauberman are scheduled to be Swamp Thing's showrunners and lead writers.
Swamp Thing is scheduled to debut sometime in 2019 on the DC Universe streaming service.
