Deadline.com reports that the network has given a put pilot commitment to “Lucifer,” based on a DC character who appeared in “The Sandman” comic books and later was given his own eponymous comic book series.
The character, who was created to look like David Bowie, resigns his role as the Lord of Hell after becoming bored, and heads to Los Angeles, where he opens a piano bar called Lux.
The drama comes from Warner Bros. TV, along with Tom Kapinos’ Aggressive Mediocrity. Kapinos of “Californication” is writing and executive producing.
