Deadline Hollywood has reported the Vertigo / DC Spin-off of Sandman, Lucifer, to getting shopped for it’s own tv series.
Thanks to Daniel for the tip.
As Fox feted the premiere of its new series Gotham last night in New York, the network is betting on another drama based on a DC character from a top series creator. Fox has given a put pilot commitment to Lucifer, from Californication creator/executive producer Tom Kapinos and DC Entertainment sibling Warner Bros TV, which is behind all DC-themed TV projects.Based on the Vertigo characters, the TV series, written and executive produced by Kapinos, centers on Lucifer who, bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell, resigns his throne and abandons his kingdom for the gorgeous, shimmering insanity of Los Angeles, where he opens an exclusive piano bar called Lux. Warner Bros TV is producing with Kapinos’ Aggressive Mediocrity.
Lucifer first appeared in Sandman #4, the Neil Gaiman Classic. He had a storied run in his own Mike Carey written Lucifer #1 (so glad I held onto this one). Before the ongoing series, he starred in Sandman Presents Lucifer #1-3 (also glad I held onto these.)
