ComicBookResources is reporting that Constantine, the new NBC series based on the Keanu Reeves movie of the same name, will debut in October, rather than September like most new TV shows. The move is being attributed by industry insiders to the show having horror elements and October being widely regarded as the scariest of all months. For more on this story, The Outhouse would like to turn this article over to the lord of the undead, Count Dracula.
Ooooooooooh! I am Count Drakula! I vant to suck your blood! Oooooh! Constantine is scaaaaaarrrrryyy. It's so spooooookyyy! Yess! I don't have anything else to saaaaay about this, but ve've got to pad out this aaaAAAAAAAaaaaarticle! Why don't we just run the synooOOOPPPPsis?!
Good idea, Drac. Here you go:
Based on the wildly popular comic book series "Hellblazer" from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine (Matt Ryan, "Criminal Minds") specializes in giving hell... hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wickedly naughty wit, he fights the good fight - or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he's decided to leave his do-gooder life behind, but when demons target Liv (Lucy Griffiths, "True Blood"), the daughter of one of Constantine's oldest friends, he's reluctantly thrust back into the fray - and he'll do whatever it takes to save her. Before long, it's revealed that Liv's "second sight" - an ability to see the worlds behind our world and predict supernatural occurrences - is a threat to a mysterious new evil that's rising in the shadows. Now it's not just Liv who needs protection; the angels are starting to get worried too. So, together, Constantine and Liv must use her power and his skills to travel the country, find the demons that threaten our world and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows... maybe there's hope for him and his soul after all.
The cast also includes Harold Perrineau and Charles Halford.
