JUDGE DREDD TV SHOW IN THE WORKS
Independent entertainment studio IM Global and Rebellion are working on a live-action TV show Judge Dredd: Mega City One. The show is set in a future where the East Coast of the U.S. has become a crowded and crime-ridden megalopolis. The plan is to make the series an ensemble drama about a team of Judges — futuristic cops invested with the power to be judge, jury, and executioner — as they deal with the challenges the 22nd century.
The show is still in the early stages of development, and no talent or network affiliation has been announced.
Executive producers of the new show are IM Global Television president Mark Stern, IM Global Television CEO Stuart Ford and Rebellion’s Jason and Chris Kingsley.
“This is one of those seminal sci-fi properties that seems to only become and more relevant with age,” said Stern in a statement. “Not only is it a rich world with biting social commentary, but it’s also fun as hell! As a fan of the comics and both films, it’s a dream come true to be able to work with Jason and Chris in adapting this for television.”
“We’re very excited to be beginning the journey to get more of Judge Dredd’s Mega-City One on the television screen,” said Jason and Chris Kingsley said. “Thanks to the legions of fans who have kept up pressure on social media, and a lot of background work and enthusiasm, we aim to make a big budget production that will satisfy both our vast comics audience and the even greater general screen-watching public.”http://www.firstcomicsnews.com/judge-dredd-tv-show-in-the-works/http://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/judge-dredd-logo-600x257.pnghttp://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/judge-dredd-logo-150x64.pngMovie & TV NewsNews
