NBC shows first ‘Constantine’ trailer
Fall television is heating up, more so on the set of Constantine, NBC has released the first-look trailer for the new series which you can watch below. For anyone that hasn’t read the DC Comics series “Hellblazer,” that the show is based on, we can fill you in on the popular storyline. Demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine (played by Matt Ryan, “Criminal Minds”) specializes in dealing with the dark arts and those that follow it. He’s a fast-talking, doomed soul, that at one time decided to leave his previous life behind him, then demons target Liv (Lucy Griffiths, “True Blood”), the daughter of one of Constantine’s oldest friends, and he comes back (reluctantly) to keep her safe.
Before long, it’s revealed that Liv’s “second sight” — an ability to see the worlds behind our world and predict supernatural occurrences — is a threat to a mysterious new evil that’s rising in the shadows. Now it’s not just Liv who needs protection; the angels are starting to get worried too. So, together, Constantine and Liv must use her power and his skills to travel the country, find the demons that threaten our world and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows… maybe there’s hope for him and his soul after all.
The cast also includes Harold Perrineau and Charles Halford. Writer Daniel Cerone (“The Mentalist,” “Dexter”) serves as executive producer with David S. Goyer (“Man of Steel,” “The Dark Knight Rises”). “Constantine” is produced from Bonanza Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. The show is based upon characters published by DC Entertainment.
