HBO Max's GREEN LANTERN Gets Series Order & Showrunner

 
The Green Lantern Corps has the greenlight.

Variety has reported that HBO Max has given a series order for Green Lantern, based on the DC Comics superheroes.  First announced in development last October, Green Lantern will join Doom Patrol, Titans and Harley Quinn, which were recently brought over to HBO Max from the DC Universe streaming service.

According to the article, Green Lantern will "depict the adventures of a multitude of Lanterns, including Guy Gardner, Jessica Cruz, Simon Baz and Alan Scott — Earth’s first Green Lantern, who, true to the comics, is a gay man — and many more.  The series will also include fan favorites such as Sinestro and Kilowog, and will also introduce new heroes to the ranks of the Green Lantern Corps."

The series received a 10-episode order and will be co-written and executive produced by Seth Grahame-Smith and Marc Guggenheim, with Grahame-Smith serving as showrunner.  Berlanti Productions will produce in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Grahame-Smith, 44, is best known as the writer of the novels novels Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter, and co-wrote the 2012 film version of Dark Shadows.  He was also one of the screenwriters on The LEGO Batman Movie.

Guggenheim, 50, is the co-writer of the 2011 Green Lantern movie starring Ryan Reynolds, and the screenwriter for Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.  He also served as showrunner on Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow, and was an executive producer and writer on Supergirl.
