Showtime Developing THE DAMNED TV Series With Watchmen And X2 Writer

It looks like Showtime is in gear to develop THE DAMNED into its next big series from the Oni Press comic book. Demons and mobsters? I'm in! Read on below!

From Deadline:

Showtime has put in development The Damned, a drama series project based on independent graphic novel and comic book publisher Oni Press’ comic book limited series. It will be written by feature writer David Hayter who has co-penned several big-screen comic book adaptations – X-Men, X2 and Watchmen.

The Damned is described as a modern adaptation of the comic, written by Cullen Bunn and illustrated by Brian Hurtt. It will revolve around Eddie, a cursed man, who is stuck in the middle of a turf war in modern day Chicago where mobsters are demons. Eddie must play all the angles to keep the warring families at bay while trying to reclaim his soul.

Sounds cool to me!
