A live-action Swamp Thing series is in the works for DC’s over-the-top service, which finally has a name. A script-to-series order has been placed for a one-hour drama from Atomic Monster and Warner Bros. Television. The Swamp Thing series will air exclusively on DC Universe, DC’s proprietary digital service, starting in 2019.

Atomic Monster’s James Wan, whose credits include Aquaman, Insidious, and The Conjuring, is attached to executive produce along with Mark Verheiden, Gary Dauberman, and Michael Clear. Rob Hackett will co-produce. Verheiden and Dauberman are set to write the series, and the pair have significant experience writing geek properties. Verheiden worked on Ash Vs. Evil Dead, Marvel’s Daredevil, Constantine, Battlestar Galactica and more. Dauberman wrote the screenplay for 2017’s It and the upcoming sequel.

Swamp Thing will join previously announced live-action series Titans (see “'The Walking Dead' Ratings Slip, Hot Trailer for 'Fahrenheit 451,' Animated 'Rocketeer' And 'Moon Girl,' 'Sabrina' and 'Titans' Casting”) and Young Justice: Outsiders (see “Live-Action 'Titans' Will Air on DC Digital Service”) and animated series Harley Quinn (see “Harley Quinn Gets Animated”) in the lineup of DC Universe-exclusive shows.

Swamp Thing was created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson. The series will center on Abby Arcane, who meets love of her life Alec Holland -- and eventual Swamp Thing -- while investigating a swamp-bourne virus in her childhood home of Houma, Louisiana.
