MIDNIGHT, MASS. - The television series



















The troubled comic book series, "Midnight, Mass." which I created for DC/Vertigo in the early 2000s may be headed to television.

According to the Hollyood Reporter:

NBC to adapt 'Midnight' comic
Drama among the most heavily pursued DC titles

"Midnight, Mass." is headed to television.

NBC has picked up a live-action drama adaptation of the comic book series from DC Comics' Vertigo imprint.

Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts are on board to write the project for Warner Bros. TV and studio-based Jinks/Cohen Co.

"Midnight," which has received a script commitment with penalty from the network, revolves around Adam and Julia Kadmons, a sophisticated, sexy, globe-trotting husband-and-wife team who solve mysteries and crimes of the supernatural.

John Rozum's "Midnight, Mass." has been among the most heavily pursued of DC Comics' properties for a TV series adaptation by sister company WBTV.

Over the years, almost a dozen producers at the studio had taken a stab at the comic, but this is the first time such a project has been set up at a network.

Berg and Harberts are executive producing "Midnight" with Jinks and Cohen.

ICM-repped Berg and Harberts serve as executive producers/showrunners on NBC/UMS' new medical drama "Mercy" with creator Liz Heldens.


For the record, the main characters are Adam and Julia Kadmon, not Kadmons, and error made in every report I've seen so far.

This is the second attempt to turn Midnight, Mass. into a television series. Hopefully, this one will work out.

To read other reports on the project visit Bleeding Cool and UGO .

Did "Midnight, Mass." ever get collected? I found I only ever picked up the first 4 issues.
