‘Swamp Thing’ Live-Action TV Series in Development for DC Universe Streaming Service

In a press release issued to Talkies Network today, DC and Warner Bros. announced yet another addition to DC’s streaming service currently titled “DC Universe.” The series will focus on the character Swamp Thing and is being produced by Aquaman director James Wan.

The project will be co-written by Mark Verheiden (Daredevil, Battlestar Galactica) and Gary Dauberman (It), who would serve as showrunners if the series gets picked up. Aquaman director James Wan is set to executive produce, alongside Atomic Monster executives Michael Clear and Rob Hackett.

The official description for the series can be found below.

“The drama follows what happens when CDC researcher Abby Arcane returns to her childhood home of Houma, Louisiana, in order to investigate a deadly swamp-borne virus. There, 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.”

Swamp Thing is targeted for a 2019 launch, only on DC Universe.
