Greg Berlanti ("Arrow," "The Flash," "Supergirl," "Titans," "Doom Patrol") has set two new projects in the works exclusively for HBO's new streaming platform -- "Strange Adventures" and a "Green Lantern" inspired series, it was announced Tuesday at the HBO Max WarnerMedia Day.
"Both of these original DC properties we'll be creating for HBO Max will be unlike anything seen on television," said Berlanti. "An anthology series of cautionary tales set in a world where superpowers exist, and, in what promises to be our biggest DC show ever made, we will be going to space with a Green Lantern television series, but I can't reveal any more about that just yet."
"Strange Adventures," a DC Super Hero anthology series executive produced by Berlanti, will feature characters from across the DC canon. This one-hour drama series will explore close-ended morality tales about the intersecting lives of mortals and superhumans.
"Strange Adventures" is based on the characters from DC and is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. Berlanti, Sarah Schechter ("Arrow," "The Flash," "Supergirl," "Titans," "Doom Patrol"), and showrunner/writer John Stephens ("Gotham," "Gossip Girl") serve as executive producers. Charlie Huston ("Powers," "Gotham") is a co-executive producer, Brigitte Hales ("Once Upon a Time") is a producer, and Selwyn Seyfu Hinds ("Dominique Laveau: Voodoo Child," "The Twilight Zone") is a consulting producer.
The "Green Lantern" inspired series, based on the characters from the iconic DC comic, will come from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.
Every DC Comics Movie Ranked, Including 'Zack Snyder's Justice League'
How does the revamped, four-hour-long "Justice League" fare in our rankings?
Marvel may be the dominant force in comic book movies at the moment just through sheer numbers, it's actually DC Comics that has the historical edge. Films based on DC properties go back nearly a century to those ancient Batman and Superman serials, while Marvel didn't really get things going until this century. That's a lot of history -- how does "Zack Snyder's Justice League" aka The Snyder Cut stack up?
