NBC has put in development “Midnight, Mass.,” a drama series based on characters from the Vertigo comic books and graphic novels published by DC Entertainment. Deadline reports that Snow White And The Huntsman co-writer Evan Daugherty will write the adaptation, produced by Warner Bros. TV and Bill Gerber‘s Gerber Pictures, which has received a script commitment.
The “Midnight, Mass.” comics creator John Rozum will serve as an executive consultant on the TV project, “about a sophisticated, sexy, globe-trotting husband and wife paranormal investigator team — based in Midnight, Massachusetts — that takes on supernatural foes, macabre mysteries and the most frightening creature of all: marriage.”
This is the second time NBC and Warner Bros. TV are taking a stab at a “Midnight, Mass.” drama series. In 2009, WBTV’s adaptation with a different team, writers Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts and non-writing executive producers Dan Jinks and Bruce Cohen, also landed at NBC but did not go to pilot stage.
