    I never expected this could happen after the movie.

    9/21: I guess a League of Extraordinary Gentlemen TV show is next. :p

    11/19: Lindelof comments on the need to take the comic to TV.

    12/18: Starts filming March 2018.

    1/11: HBO President Bloys praises the script and confirms it will film this year.

    1/30: Nicole Kassell will direct the pilot.

    4/24: Lindelof states he's not adapting Watchmen into a TV show and likens it to be more like FX's Fargo series is being done.

    Somehow I don't think Lindelof's adaptation semantics will pass muster with Moore. He famously hated and was against the Watchmen prequel comics and couldn't have been happy about the story being brought into the DC Universe proper.

    I'm okay with that. The movie already adapted the original story. Better to try something new than retread old ground.

    Ok... so unless they're really being secretive, maybe a new team is formed?

    I'm hoping it's just being very secretive. Only some keywords in the bios remind of certain characters, like sociopathic interrogator makes me think of Rorschach or Old Man makes me think of Hollis Mason. I don't know. Hopefully, it all works out for the best.
