‘Witchblade’ TV-Reboot at NBC

According to Matt Hawkins (big boy at Top Cow) and as covered by the Hollywood Reporter the comic book franchise Witchblade is rebooting as TV-series at NBC. It already did 2 seasons with Yancy Butler in the lead via TNT, it has an anime, a manga, a novel and many statues as legacy, not forgetting the decades of Comic Book material!


Hollywood Reporter:

The network is teaming with CSI grad Carol Mendelsohn and The Vampire Diaries showrunner Caroline Dries to adapt Marc Silvestri’s Top Cow comic Witchblade, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. The drama has landed at NBC with a script commitment.


Based on the graphic novel of the same name, the Sony Pictures Television drama centers on homicide detective Sara Pezzini, who’s on the hunt for an elusive serial killer and must navigate the grisly streets and police politics of San Francisco’s Mission District — until one day, the bracelet she has worn her entire life gives her supernatural insight into a crime she’s trying to solve. Her bracelet is the Witchblade, an amulet that has been worn by remarkable women throughout history, and Sara is next in line.


Dries, who will wrap the CW vampire drama later this season, will pen the script and executive produce alongside Vampire Diaries writer/co-exec producer Brian Young. The drama will be exec produced by Sony TV-based Mendelsohn and her Carol Mendelsohn Productions topper Julie Weitz. Top Cow founder-owner Silvestri and Matt Hawkins also will exec produce, along with Circle of Confusion’s Rick Jacobs and Dave Alpert (The Walking Dead).


About the Author

Richard is the driving force behind Comics for Sinners. His love and admiration for female comic book characters is virtually unparalleled, which immediately explains his biggest 'sin': his Hot Mummy fetish. This sketchbook theme is philogynistic in nature and even the source of his WIP comic book series "The Sisterhood".
