The secret will soon be out!! DC Comics and CBS announced today they are developing a drama series based off the long-time DC Comics series “Secret Six”.
The project has already received a pilot production commitment at the network, will be centred around six characters of morally-ambiguous nature being brought together by a shadowy & mysterious figure, to expose those in powerful positions around the world, using the Six’s individual unique abilities. Rick Muirragui (Suits) is attached as writer and executive producer, Bill Lawrence (Scrubs) & Jeff Ingold (Rush Hour) also executive producing the series through Doozer Productions, the production company itself producing the show. CBS has been home to a few prior TV series adapted from DC Comics properties, most recently the first season of “Supergirl” (before it moved to the CW with season two) and the single season of “Powerless”.
It is unclear which characters will appear in this adaptation at the present time, however as the premise seems to be partially based on the fan-favourite run written by Gail Simone, that could lead to appearances by Scandal Savage, Catman, Deadshot, Bane, Jeanette and Ragdoll.
