We Know Who Watches the ‘Watchmen’: Damon Lindelof to Develop

From THR:

Fresh off of critical favorite The Leftovers,Damon Lindelof is in talks for a potential Watchmen TV series for HBO. Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the project is in the early development stages. An official deal is not yet in place. Representatives for HBO and producers Warner Bros. Television declined comment.

Lindelof is no stranger to adaptations or dark, complex narratives. His previous credits include LostCowboys & AliensWorld War ZStar Trek/Into Darkness, and Prometheus. He has publicly stated his love for the Watchmen comic before:
“From the flashbacks to the nonlinear storytelling to the deeply flawed heroes, these are all elements that I try to put into everything I write.”

Watchmen was published by DC comics, and created by writer Alan Moore, artist Dave Gibbons, and colorist John Higgins in 1986. The series went on to greatly influence comics and the superhero genre as a whole, emphasizing grittier and more critical looks at these characters. It is known for its deeply complex story, told in nonlinear and often meta “story-within-story” form. Watchmen can be found in collected form at your local comic book shop, book store, or as a motion comic.
