After an earlier effort didn’t get off the ground, NBC is making a second attempt at developing a drama based on the comic "Midnight, Mass.," Deadline.com reports. This time around, "Snow White and the Huntsman" co-writer Evan Daugherty is slated to write, the story reports.
A different team adapted the comic in 2009, but that adaptation didn’t make it to the pilot stage, according to the story.
The comic’s creator, John Rozum, will work as an executive consultant on the project, which is produced by Warner Bros. TV and Gerber Pictures. The network has given the project a script commitment.
The comic, published by DC Entertainment, is about a husband-and-wife paranormal investigator team who work from Midnight, Massachusetts. While they battle creatures and take on mysteries, their biggest issue might be their marriage, the story notes.
