SyFy Developing TV Series Based On DC/Vertigo’s DMZ

Yet another DC Comics title is heading to the small screen. According to Deadline, SyFy has picked up a new television drama that adapts the DC/Vertigo series DMZ. Executive producers/writers Andre and Maria Jacquemetton (Mad Men) are partnering with Gravity producer David Heyman to bring the series to life. DMZ “is set in the near future and centers on a young man trapped in Manhattan, which has been turned into a demilitarized zone (DMZ) after a second American civil war.” The comic book series was created by writer Brian Wood and artist Riccardo Burchielli, and its 72-issue run spanned from 2005-2012. The TV adaptation is being produced by Warner Horizon, Slim Chance Productions, and Heyday Films.

DMZ is the latest addition to a list of DC television shows in development. The CW is working on The Flash, iZombie and Hourman, while Fox is developing Gotham, NBC has ordered Constantine, and AMC is making a Preacher series. Stay tuned for more news as we have it.
