‘Green Lantern’-Inspired Series Helmed by Greg Berlanti in the Works for HBO Max
By Leena Tailor
Greg Berlanti has announced two new DC projects for HBO Max.
The producer, behind shows like Arrow and Supergirl, is working on two new projects for the streaming platform: Strange Adventures and a series inspired by the film, Green Lantern.
“Both of these original DC properties we’ll be creating for HBO Max will be unlike anything seen on television,” Berlanti said in a media release. “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.”
Berlanti previously wrote and produced the Green Lantern movie, starring Ryan Reynolds. The television adaptation will be a joint venture between Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television.
The other project, Strange Adventures, is an anthology series featuring various DC Comics characters, which will “explore close-ended morality tales about the intersecting lives of mortals and superhumans.”
