On Tuesday night, Greg Berlanti announced two new projects in the works exclusively for HBO Max, the company’s upcoming subscription streaming platform. Those two projects are “Strange Adventures” and a new series inspired by the DC Super Hero the Green Lantern. The shows were confirmed during the HBO Max presentation on WarnerMedia Day.
“Both of these original DC properties we’ll be creating for HBO Max will be unlike anything seen on television,” said Berlanti. “An anthology series of cautionary tales set in a world where superpowers exist, and, in what promises to be our biggest DC show ever made, we will be going to space with a Green Lantern television series, but I can’t reveal any more about that just yet.”
According to HBO Max, “Strange Adventures” is a DC Super Hero anthology series executive produced by Berlanti. The show will feature characters from across the DC canon, but right now the exact cast of characters is being kept a secret. The one-hour drama series will explore close-ended morality tales about the intersecting lives of mortals and superhumans. “Strange Adventures” is based on the characters from DC and is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and showrunner and writer John Stephens serve as executive producers on the project. Charlie Huston is a co-executive producer, Brigitte Hales is a producer, and Selwyn Seyfu Hinds is a consulting producer.
The “Green Lantern” inspired series, based on the characters from the iconic DC comic, will come from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. HBO didn’t offer any details on the two series, but if you’re a DC fan, it’s nice to know that more content is coming to the platform. Fans will just have to wait a few more weeks before learning more about the cast.
HBO Max is expected to launch in May of 2020, and will cost $14.99 per month. At launch, AT&T will immediately offer HBO Max to the roughly 10M HBO subscribers on AT&T distribution platforms, at no additional charge. HBO Now direct-billed users who subscribe directly through HBONow.com will also have access to Warner Media’s HBO Max. AT&T customers on premium video, mobile and broadband services will be offered bundles with HBO Max included at no additional charge.
The other projects announced tonight include a new Gina Rodriguez movie, and the network also confirmed that “Rick and Morty” episodes will be available to subscribers. The company outlined the kids content that is slated to launch on the service, as well as new shows from Elizabeth Banks and Mindy Kaling. HBO Max is also the new home to Ridley Scott’s “Raised by Wolves” sci-fi series.
