Midnight, Mass., a Vertigo miniseries from 2002, is going to be a live-action TV show on NBC. The comic, about a couple that investigated supernatural mysteries, ran 8 issues, followed by the 6-issue “Here There Be Monsters” in 2004. I remember the comic getting a second chance due to rumors of media interest back then, and the article confirms that:
“Midnight” has been among the most heavily pursued of DC Comics’ properties for a TV series adaptation by 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.
The comic was written by John Rozum with art by Jesus Saiz and Jimmy Palmiotti. I enjoyed it — it had the flavor of The Thin Man with a lot more monsters, plus a sense of humor. TV show writers will be Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts, previously of Pushing Daisies, so I hope they’ll be able to capture the flavor accurately.
