Bad Robot Productions, owned by JJ Abrams, have joined hands with HBO Max to develop three series for the platform. A Justice League Dark based series is among them. Also, Bad Robot and HBO Max will also collaborate on a series inspired by author Stephen King’s The Shining titled Overlook.
JJ Abram’s collaboration with HBO Max
All three shows are HBO Max’s first offerings on its platform. It is a result of the new partnership between Abram’s Bad Robot Productions and Warner Media, which was first revealed in September 2019. Kevin Reilly, the chief content officer of HBO Max, voiced his delight at JJ Abram for creating an original drama for the streaming service and working on series adapted from Stephen King’s novel and the DC Universe as well.
What we know about the upcoming shows
At present, there are no details regarding the Justice League Dark project. Furthermore, characters featuring in the show are also unknown to the public as of now. The series Overlook would be a collaboration between the creators of Hulu’s Castle Rock series. Consequently, the show would be a horror-thriller watch for the viewers. Meanwhile, the third confirmed series Duster would focus on a getaway driver who is working for a growing crime syndicate.
The future of DC Universe series
The “Justice League Dark” series is the latest addition to the DC projects for HBO Max. An animated miniseries based on Aquaman and an untitled Green Lantern series is also said to be in the works. Moreover, the DCU series Doom Patrol‘s second season will also premiere on HBO Max this year alongside the first season.
