Syfy is looking to bring Booster Gold to life on the small screen.
The NBCUniversal cable network has ordered a pilot script for the one-hour drama based on the DC Comics franchise.
The project, which hails from Greg Berlanti’s Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television, will count Berlanti (Brothers & Sisters, No Ordinary Family, Green Lantern) as an executive producer. Fringe‘s Andrew Kreisberg, who collaborated with Berlanti on ABC’s Eli Stone, is on board to pen the script and executive produce. DC Comics will also receive an EP credit.
I know I get a lot of shit for being negative about everything, but I have absolutely zero problems with this. Booster Gold is a great character for a standalone, non-DC-continuity-heavy show, it sounds perfect for Syfy, and if a guy from Fringe is working on it, I’d say the chances of it being at least pretty good are solid. In fact, the only problem I foresee is when SyFy inevitably cancels it for another Ghost Hunters spin-off, probably Ghost Hunters: In Tha ‘Hood.
