J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions will develop a TV show "set in the Justice League Dark universe" for HBO Max, as announced in Variety. The project was previously reported to have moved under Bad Robot's creative banner for HBO Max.
The official title of the Justice League Dark show was not announced. Bad Robot will also produce an original drama titled Duster and a spin-off of The Shining titled Overlook for the upcoming streaming service.
“What an amazing start to our association with the wildly imaginative Bad Robot team under J.J. and Katie [McGrath],” said Kevin Reilly, chief content officer of HBO Max and president of TNT, TBS, and truTV. “What could be better than an original J.J. idea and then Warner Bros. letting them loose on iconic I.P. from Stephen King and the DC Universe and to provide more must-have programming on HBO Max.”
Bad Robot signed an overall first look deal with WarnerMedia, including HBO Max in 2019.
