James Wan to Helm Swamp Thing TV Series; Logo Revealed
There has been plenty of talks about the upcoming DC streaming service since the announcement made last year, with the subsequent announcement of the Teen Titans live action series to be the service’s first exclusive. Today DC Entertainment was happy to announce another series exclusive for it: A Swamp Thing TV series.
The series is currently in development as a ‘script to series’ order, with James Wan (Saw, Aquaman) set to be the executive producer for the project. Casting has yet to be announced, but DC Entertainment did provide an official description for the series:
When CDC researcher Abby Arcane returns to her childhood home of Houma, Louisiana, in order to investigate a deadly swamp-borne virus, she develops a surprising bond with scientist Alec Holland — only to have him tragically taken from her. But as powerful forces descend on Houma, intent on exploiting the swamp’s mysterious properties for their own purposes, Abby will discover that the swamp holds mystical secrets, both horrifying and wondrous — and the potential love of her life may not be dead after all.
