Constantine (based on the comic by DC Comics) is coming to NBC at a 10pm Friday slot starting this fall.

It's good news for fans of DC Comics' preeminent supernatural sleuth, because this take on John Constantine is a whole lot more like the Vertigo character than the version Keanu Reeves played on the big screen almost a decade ago.

The pilot is directed by Neil Marshall, who made one hell of a horror thriller with The Descent a few years back and also directed the Battle of Blackwater Bay episode of Game of Thrones back in season two.  Seems he's set the table for the series nicely.

Studio
Warner Bros. Television, DC Comics

Executive Producer/Writer
Daniel Cerone (The Mentalist, Dexter)

Executive Producer
David S. Goyer (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight Rises, Man of Steel)

Neil Marshall (Game of Thrones, The Descent)

Synopsis:
Based on the wildly popular  DC Comics series “Hellblazer,” seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine (Matt Ryan, “Criminal Minds”) specializes in giving hell… hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wickedly naughty wit, he fights the good fight — or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he’s decided to leave his do-gooder life behind, but when demons target Liv (Lucy Griffiths, “True Blood”), the daughter of one of Constantine’s oldest friends, he’s reluctantly thrust back into the fray – and he’ll do whatever it takes to save her. Before long, it’s revealed that Liv’s “second sight” — an ability to see the worlds behind our world and predict supernatural occurrences — is a threat to a mysterious new evil that’s rising in the shadows. Now it’s not just Liv who needs protection; the angels are starting to get worried too. So, together, Constantine and Liv must use her power and his skills to travel the country, find the demons that threaten our world and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows… maybe there’s hope for him and his soul after all.
