Fox has given a put pilot commitment to Lucifer, the Sandman character that was spun offf into its own comic series from DC imprint Vertigo, according to Variety. A put pilot commitment means that the network is guaranteeing to air the pilot before it’s produced, which generally means the series is likely to be picked up.
In the TV series, the Lord of Hell gets bored and moves to Los Angeles, where he opens an exclusive piano bar called Lux. It will be produced by Tom Kapinos (Californication, Dawson’s Creek).
Warner Bros. has been on a roll recently with DC-based TV series, with Arrow spinoff The Flash, Constantine, Gotham, and iZombie all set to debut, and series based on the Teen Titans (see "'Titans' Live Action") and Supergirl (see "'Flash' Producers Confirm Rumors") in development.
The fourth Lucifer graphic novel was released by Vertigo last month (pictured here); a fifth is due in December.
