    But how will it be a metaphor for faith? Just kidding, I actually really enjoyed Leftovers and Watchmen.

    Ooo now this has potential. I was always a big GL fan and they really need to lean into the whole “space cop” thing, which a TV series should really help them with. That can then lay the foundations you can build on with some of the more sweeping storylines.

    This is the best summary I could come up with:


    The writer-producer, one of the co-creators of seminal adventure series Lost who later brought seminal comic Watchmen to the screen as an acclaimed, Emmy-winning HBO limited series, is part of the creative team behind Lanterns, the DC based-show from DC Studios.

    Chris Mundy, the showrunner behind Netflix’s crime series Ozark, as well as Eisner-winning and long-time DC comic author Tom King round out the creative team, DC Studios co-head James Gunn announced on Instagram Saturday.

    Gunn welcome Lindelof and Mundy into the DC family and said the trio had written a “wonderful” pilot script and bible, announcing that the series is now “putting together a crack team of writers.”

    “This plays a really big role in leading into the main story we are telling across film and TV,” Safran said in January 2023 when he and Gunn unveiled their initial DC plans.

    It is unclear if that still holds though the social media post accompanied by drawings of heroes Hal Jordan and John Stewart, implying it will be a two-hander.

    After establishing his bona fides with Lost, Lindelof co-created The Leftovers, the HBO supernatural drama that explored the ramifications of losing people in a sudden and great disappearance.
