'Constantine' Gets Pilot Order From NBC

Keanu may not have been the best Constantine, but television is about to give the character another chance.

Deadline has reported that NBC has ordered a pilot for Constantine, a new show written by Daniel Cerone and David S. Goyer of DC's John Constantine series.

Constantine is a supernatural detective who defends the world from "the beyond."  The comic was originally a Vertigo series, but has now been wrapped into the "new52" world of DC and has become a less "mature" property.  But, with this show being prepped for NBC the chances are it won't get too mature either way.

That racks up several television properties for DC, with Once Upon a Time (oh wait - TV passed on Fable), Arrow, Flash, Gotham, and now Constantine.

About the Author - Jeremy Shane

Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea.  Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California.  When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead.  Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim.  If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
