Variety is reporting that TNT is developing an all new live action TV series based on the popular DC Comics team Teen Titans. The show would star the character Nightwing/Dick Grayson, and reportedly involve Starfire and Raven.
Executive producing on the show is former Batman & Robin writer, Akiva Goldsman. While that may raise a lot of red flags with Batman fans and film lovers alike, you’ll do well to keep in mind that Goldsman went on to write some really great films since that time, including A Beautiful Mind, I Am Legend, The Da Vinci Code, and Lone Survivor. He was also heavily involved in the TV series Fringe. Marc Haimes will also be an co-executive producer, the both men will be writing the pilot episode together.
Stay tuned to see if this pilot actual comes to fruition, allowing the Teen Titans to join a long list of other DC Comics series already on air, or coming this fall.
