CW Developing 'Deadman' Project With 'Supernatural' Creator Eric Kripke
The story centers on the spirit of a trapeze artist, Boston Brand, who is murdered.
The CW is getting back into business with Supernatural creator Eric Kripke.
The network is developing an adaptation of DC Comics' Deadman, by Arnold Drake and Carmine Infantino, with Kripke writing and executive producing.
Deadman centers on the spirit of a trapeze artist, Boston Brand, who is murdered, and continues to live on by inhabiting other people's bodies and helping them resolve conflicts and issues in their lives. He first appeared in October 1967. Deadman will be produced by Warner Bros. TV.
Kripke exited his day-to-day duties as showrunner on Supernatural at the end of the fifth season, with executive producer Sera Gamble taking over. Supernatural is entering into Season 7 this fall.
Earlier this year at PaleyFest, Kripke told The Hollywood Reporter that the TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman's comic book series The Sandman was "not in the works, at least for this season" but he hoped that "we can do it again in the future." In September 2010, WBTV named him its top choice to develop the series.
