Pilot For DC’s ‘Lucifer’ Under Development At Fox

Posted by Bob Muir on Sep 17, 2014 in Comic Books, Television |


It seems that Gotham won’t be the only DC comic adaptation on Fox. Californication creator/executive producer Tom Kapinos is working with Warner Bros. TV to adapt Lucifer for Fox, which has given it a put pilot commitment. Though from DC Comics, the character Lucifer mainly appeared in its older Vertigo imprint, first appearing in The Sandman as a supporting character. Later, in the 00s, DC put out Lucifer, the character’s own series in which he opens a piano bar in LA after becoming bored of ruling Hell, which is likely what this series will be based on.

While it’s still only a pilot, Fox’s commitment means that it has to air the pilot or generally lose a bunch of money. And most pilots don’t get aired without also being picked up as a series, so it’s very likely that at least one season of Lucifer will be made. Maybe this is Fox’s way to stack the deck against new DC shows on other channels, particularly NBC’s Constantine, which is also based on a supernatural Vertigo comic (Hellblazer).
