NBC has placed two orders for pilots. Deadline.com reports that the broadcast network placed orders for “The Mysteries of Laura,” based on a Spanish series, and “Constantine,” based on characters in DC Comics’ John Constantine stories.
“The Mysteries of Laura” is from writer Jeff Rake, Greg Berlanti’s Berlanti Productions and Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment. The project has a cast-contingent order and is based on “Los Misterios de Laura,” which is about a female homicide detective who can’t handle her evil twin.
“Constantine” is written and executive produced by “The Mentalist” executive producer Daniel Cerone and David S. Goyer. It tracks a con man named John Constantine who becomes a supernatural detective. The character was played by Keanu Reeves in the 2005 film “Constantine.”
