As we reported in September last year (here), Mike Carey and Peter Gross’ DC/Vertigo book Lucifer is looking like it’s coming to the small screen.

Lucifer, based on the character from Neil Gaiman’s Sandman books, has had a ‘put pilot’ put on it by FOX; this means it will air or FOX will be fined a lot of money.

It now seems that the pilot is going ahead, having been greenlit. It’s “a slice-of-life drama in, out of Hell and into Los Angeles, it looks like Satan is coming to prime time again pretty soon…”

We want to see this and hope that Constantine and Preacher will both still be around to see it too.

Variety have confirmed that FOX have indeed ordered the pilot episode

“Underworld director Len Wiseman will reportedly direct the pilot, and will also act as executive producer alongside Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman. Tom Kapinos, who is best known for Californication, will write the pilot screenplay and also work as an executive producer.”

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….
