‘Lucifer’: Another DC Comics Pilot Heads to Fox TV

By September 16, 2014

Apparently Warner Bros. Television isn’t satisfied with “Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Gotham,” and “Constantine.” They already have a “Supergirl” TV series in the works, and one based on the Teen Titans as well. But their hunger for comic-related success knows no bounds, as they continue to mine the DC library for more properties that could work as TV shows. The Wrap reports that Fox has given a put pilot commitment to “Lucifer,” a new show from “Californication” creator/showrunner Tom Kapinos. Here’s the description:

“Lucifer,” based on the characters from Vertigo, follows the bored and unhappy titular Lord of Hell. In the show, Lucifer resigns his throne and abandons his kingdom for the gorgeous, shimmering insanity of Los Angeles, where he opens an exclusive piano bar called Lux.

I’m not too familiar with this specific iteration of the character, but he’s mostly appeared as a supporting character in Neil Gaiman’s Sandman comic book series and in a spin-off comic of his own. Not much else is known about the show at this point, other than that the pilot will be a one-hour drama. No casting or directorial choices have been made yet, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated as soon as we hear more.

Are you excited about a “Lucifer” TV series?
