CBS bringing DC’s Secret Six to TV screens in new series?

October 11th, 2018 by Marc Comments

More DC TV goodness is coming…

Not enough that The CW are bringing us the Arrowverse, the the DC Universe streaming service has numerous shows planned and Fox’s Gotham is still running, with an Alfred Pennyworth show planned, but now CBS are jumping in.

Now, CBS briefly were involved in the DC TV universe with Supergirl, but when that failed at the network, The CW stepped in an took it under their wing, so there’s probably not a lot of confidence in CBS developing a Secret Six series which has been given a pilot order.

Secret Six is the story of a bunch of ever-revolving misfits who gather together to do missions for a shadowy figure who is blackmailing them to work to expose the corruption of the corporate and political elite.

The team has featured Catman, Bane, Deadshot, Kingshark, Harley and many more, which makes us wonder why The CW isn’t doing it as they have already brough several members to life.

And yes, this is basically another version of Suicide Squad.

 

Rick Muirragui will write and executive produce, with Bill Lawrence and Jeff Ingold executive producing via Doozer Productions. Warner Bros. Television, where Doozer is under an overall deal, will produce.

 

So, a Secret Six series, huh?

We’ll not get too excited yet.. but we are curious.

Let us know your thoughts, guys.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
