HBO Max, the new streaming service from the premium network, is set to launch in May. In addition to the already stacked bullpen of content ready to go, they’ve just greenlighted three new series from J.J. Abrams’s production company, Bad Robot.
The one-hour dramas include Overlook, inspired by the characters in Stephen King’s The Shining; Duster, one of Abrams’s original conceptions; and an unspecified show set in the DC Comics Justice League Dark universe.
Coming off of a big film and TV deal signed between Abrams and WarnerMedia in 2019, these shows are positioned to be the first three purebreds out of the entertainment partnership gate.
Here’s what we know about them:
A 10-episode horror series that “explores the untold, terrifying stories of the most famous haunted hotel in American fiction.” Much like with the 2018 Hulu anthology series, Castle Rock, this is a collaboration between Stephen King, Bad Robot and Warner Bros.
A drama co-written by Abrams and LaToya Morgan – “set in the 1970s Southwest and revolves around the life of a gutsy getaway driver for a growing crime syndicate who goes from awful to wildly, stupidly, dangerously awful.”
Justice League Dark
Details are under wraps, but it will be an hour-long series based on the iconic DC characters from the series of comics.
