‘Dreadstar’ Is Coming To Your TV, Network Still In Question

Comic book legend Jim Starlin is poised to bring one of his best-known titles to the small screen.

Starlin is teaming with Universal Cable Productions and Benderspink to adapt Dreadstar as a scripted TV series, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. A network is not yet attached.

Dreadstar — first published in 1982 by Marvel imprint Epic Comics — centers on Vanth Dreadstar, sole survivor of the entire Milky Way galaxy, and an ensemble cast of crewmates, including cyborg sorcerer Syzygy Darklock, and their struggle to end an ancient war between two powerful, evil empires: The Church of The Instrumentality, run by the Lord Papal; and the Monarchy, administered by King Gregzor.
