HBO, in collaboration with Warner Bros. Television and DC Studios, has officially announced an eight-episode, straight-to-series order for “LANTERNS,” a new drama series inspired by the iconic DC title. The series will be helmed by Emmy®-nominee Chris Mundy, known for his work on HBO’s “True Detective: Night Country” and “Ozark,” who will serve as showrunner and executive producer. Emmy®-winner Damon Lindelof (HBO’s “Watchmen” and “The Leftovers”) and Eisner Award winner Tom King (“Mister Miracle,” “Supergirl”) will co-write the series alongside Mundy, with Lindelof and King also taking on executive producer roles.

“LANTERNS” will follow the story of new recruit John Stewart and legendary Lantern Hal Jordan. The two intergalactic cops are drawn into a dark, earth-based mystery as they investigate a murder in the American heartland, blending the realms of cosmic adventure and grounded detective work.

Casey Bloys, Chairman and CEO of HBO and Max Content, expressed his excitement about the series: “We are elated to be reuniting with both Chris Mundy and Damon Lindelof as they partner with Tom for this fresh take on DC’s ‘Green Lantern.’ As part of James and Peter’s vision for the DC Universe, this first new live-action series will mark an exciting new era.”

James Gunn and Peter Safran, Co-Chairmen and Co-CEOs of DC Studios, added: “We’re thrilled to bring this seminal DC title to HBO with Chris, Damon, and Tom at the helm. John Stewart and Hal Jordan are two of DC’s most compelling characters, and ‘LANTERNS’ brings them to life in an original detective story that is a foundational part of the unified DCU we’re launching next summer with ‘Superman.’”

“LANTERNS” is a collaborative effort between HBO, Warner Bros. Television, and DC Studios. The series is co-written by Chris Mundy, Damon Lindelof, and Tom King, who also serve as executive producers. The series is based on the beloved DC comic “Green Lantern.”
