    Default WATCHMEN TV Series in the works at HBO.

    DC Comics favorite Watchmen may be headed for the small screen.

    Fresh off of critical favorite The Leftovers, Damon Lindelof is in talks for a potential Watchmen TV series for HBO. Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the project is in the early development stages. An official deal is not yet in place. Representatives for HBO and producers Warner Bros. Television declined comment.

    Lindelof originally read the comics as a kid in the 1980s and has said that the series continues to influence his work. "From the flashbacks to the nonlinear storytelling to the deeply flawed heroes, these are all elements that I try to put into everything I write," he told Comic Book Resources in 2009 ahead of the feature-film take. Lindelof has read Watchmen multiple times and, at the time, praised director Zack Snyder's film. "It's the most married-to-the-original-text version of Watchmen that could've been made," he told the Observer. "I want to keep it sort of insular," he said, referring to the multiple translations that have come from trying to translate the source material. "It's OK with me if people don't understand it because they don't deserve to understand it."

    Snyder, who directed the 2009 feature-film adaptation of Alan Moore's beloved comic series, is no longer attached to the drama project from Warner Bros. Television, where both DC Entertainment and Lindelof are housed.

    Watchmen would work great as a TV series IMO. This could be great.

    Many years ago, well before Snyder, or even Paul Greengrass, this was an idea Terry Gilliam had. It makes sense, but to do it right they need to toss what the film did out the window IMO. And honestly, I'm a lot less interested than I was back in the early 2000s about such a thing. The comic is a masterpiece, and will never be rivaled. How much added value could a TV show, or movie, really bring to that story? For me, not a lot.

    While I agree, that doesn't stop me from being curios and wanting to see how they handle it.

    That's very cool though, a Gillliam Watchmen would be great.

    Under Lindelof this will be AMAZING.

    The Leftovers was ****ing perfection from start to finish. The guy's a beast and him tackling Watchmen is a wet dream.

    I hope he brings back Theroux to star because he would make a PERFECT Comedian.

    I'm interested to see what they do with casting. I met Jeffrey Dean Morgan at the Walker Stalker Con in SF and mentioned how much I loved him in Watchmen. He said that he heard they might do it on TV and there would be an animated thing but hadn't been contacted, that he heard only through the net like we have. It'll be interesting to see who they get

    Oh great....Lindelof....so is going to dither around for 5 seasons, raise more questions than it answers, pose questions no one ever thought of or cared about before getting cancelled?

    I'm out.

    The Leftovers. The end.

    No, this is Lindelof who was beholden to a studio for 5 years, answered almost every question, and recently put a bow on one of the greatest TV shows of all time. Oh and still deals with ignorant meme culture with a pretty great attitude.
