A live-action “Swamp Thing” series is in the works for DC Universe. The one-hour drama has landed a script-to-series order from the newly named DC-branded streaming service.
Based on the DC comics characters created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson, the upcoming show will follow Centers for Disease Control and Prevention researcher Abby Arcane, who returns to her childhood hometown to investigate a deadly swamp-borne virus. Once in Houma, La., she becomes close to fellow scientist Alec Holland before tragedy strikes.
Abby soon discovers that the swamp holds mystical secrets which have attracted powerful outside forces hoping to tap into their mysterious properties. She also learns that Alec, the potential love of her life, may not be dead after all.
