Lost TV Series Co-Creator Damon Lindelof Wants to Adapt Watchmen Series for HBO
The latest news in development for television series brings fans a sliver of excitement, especially for those who have loved watching series such as “Lost” and “The Leftovers”. According to the latest news update, it seems that director Damon Lindelof, the mind behind both previously mentioned series, wants to helm an adaptation of Watchmen that would air on HBO.
According to an interview with Variety, this particular series would not be picking up from previously talked about plans for a Watchmen show. Instead, plans for this latest adaptation would start fresh, giving viewers a wholly updated look into the story of these heroes that have taken comics by storm for years. Back in 2009, a film adaptation hit theaters which had been directed by Zack Snyder and introduced Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ to a new audience of all ages.
Watchmen tells the story of a group of crime fighters including Doctor Manhattan, Rorschach, Nite Owl, and Silk Spectre who take on the task of stopping a massive conspiracy when investigating the murder of hero Edward Blake. So far, there is no indication if a deal has been struck with HBO just yet or when the new HBO series might possibly air the series, so make sure to check back with DFTG for more news on the possible new series.
