NBC wants their own Supernatural, and they might have found it in Midnight, Mass.
John Rozum‘s series isn’t one of the more well known comics out of DC’s Vertigo line, but it’s been fighting to get adapted for years now. Apparently almost a dozen producers have tried to get this off the ground, but this is the first time it’s actually happened.
The comic revolves around an impossibly hot married couple of monster hunters, a rich and famous pair who get hired to deal with things that go bump in the night when they’re not posing for People magazine. We meet them and learn about their eccentricities through their hiring of an assistant, who comes on board as some supernatural stuff is going down. It’s a decent enough comic but definitely not something that was worth pursuing for years and years, especially since it only ran for 14 issues and has never been collected in a trade paperback. And especially since there’s already another show about an impossibly hot duo of monster hunters on tv right now that’s pretty fantastic.
Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts, the screenwriters behind Valentine, are handling writing duties.
