TV: ‘El Superbeasto’ Gets His Own Series?

Rob Zombie is quite the busy guy. In addition to being knee deep in pre-production on The Lords Of Salem, directing a Woolite commercial (which you can see here), touring with the likes of Slayer and Iron Maiden and preparing to enter the studio for a fifth album, it looks like he’s also been thinking a lot about El Superbeasto, his short-lived comic book character that eventually got his own animated feature.

Variety reports that he’s working on a proposed TV adaptation of the flick, which follows the exploits of a washed-up Mexican wrestler in the mythic world of Monsterland. I imagine Starz would be the first channel choice if this ever got off the ground, seeing as they released the feature. But wherever it ends up, it’s probably going to be a pay channel since the source material isn’t network television friendly at all.
