"Supernatural" executive producer Eric Kripke is hoping a Deadman succeeds where a Sandman failed. At least in terms of bringing a DC Comic character to the small screen. Less than a year after it was reported that Kripke had exited the plans to bring "Sandman" to life, Deadline is reporting he's been tapped to help develop a "Deadman" series over at the CW.
This wouldn't be the first time that someone tried bringing the character of Boston Brand to televisions with TNT trying to adapt it back in 2000. Guillermo del Toro also tried a shot and went so far as having a director attached before it fell back into development hell.
Plot Concept: Based on the character which first appeared in 1967, the story centers a murdered man, Boston Brand, who lives on as he inhabits other people’s bodies and helps them solve crises in their own lives.
