'Hourman' Series In The Works At The CW

DC Comics

The CW is prepping a new DC Comics TV series, this one starring "Hourman." According to Variety, the series will follow a brilliant (and troubled) pharmaceutical analyst who discovers his visions are glimpses of events that occur one hour in the future.

Look for The CW's "Hourman" to be a little older than the current heroes in "Arrow" and the planned "Flash" TV shows. The character in "Hourman" is hoping to win back his ex-wife and son by preventing the tragic events he witnesses in his visions.

Michael Caleo of "Ironside" is writing the script and will executive produce alongside Dan Lin and Jennifer Gwartz.

"Hourman" has been around DC Comics for years and gone through many incarnations, dating back to the 1940s. The character has served as part of the Justice Society of America and Justice League.

"Arrow," following DC Comics' Green Arrow, is now in its second season on The CW. A "Flash" spinoff of "Arrow" is in the works with the character set to be introduced this season and possibly get his own show. The network has also been at work on a script telling the origins of "Wonder Woman."
