Since the Warner Bros Discovery merger and the cancellation of Batgirl, there has been a lot of rumors that HBO Max was going to have their scripted programming gutted and fear for the second series of Peacemaker, the planned Penguin spinoff of Matt Reeves’ The Batman and the announced Green Lantern series were all in trouble. Well, HBO Max did see a ton of layoffs this week, but several shows of concern were unscathed.
A new report from Deadline says that a number of third-party projects in development have been released recently, but there are no major changes planned for the in-house/Warner Bros. TV – produced scripted slate other than the already announced reduction of kids and family programming. Peacemaker, Penguin and Green Lantern are all still moving along, as are an upcoming Dune series and an IT series adaptation.
Dune is currently casting, and IT has been fast-tracked for development. The new “normal” is starting to take shape since David Zaslov has taken over, and while we don’t have a good feel for the DC Films, it looks like DC Television is moving forward without change.
