‘Lucifer’: Fox Orders DC Comics Pilot with Jerry Bruckheimer & Len Wiseman Attached

Fox has given a formal pilot order to “Lucifer,” based on the DC Comics character.

Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman and Len Wiseman are attached to the hourlong drama as exec producers, with Wiseman set to direct the pilot.

The project hailing from Jerry Bruckheimer Television, Aggressive Mediocrity and Warner Bros. TV follows Lucifer, the Lord of Hell, as he resigns his throne and abandons his kingdom for the “shimmering insanity” of L.A., where he helps the LAPD punish criminals.

Lucifer and the characters are inspired by those from DC’s Vertigo imprint comic, created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg.

Previously announced, “Californication’s” Tom Kapinos penned the pilot. He’ll serve as an exec producer, along with Bruckheimer, Littman (“CSI,” “The Amazing Race”) and Wiseman (“Sleepy Hollow,” “Underworld” franchise), plus KristieAnne Reed (“Hostages”) as co-exec producer.

“Lucifer” is one of many comic-inspired smallscreen adaptations currently in development. This pilot season, DC Comics’ “Supergirl,” starring Melissa Benoist, landed at CBS. On the Marvel front, “A.K.A. Jessica Jones,” starring Krysten Ritter, plus three other series including “Daredevil” are heading to Netflix, while “Dreadstar” from Jim Starlin is coming to TV via Universal Cable Productions and Benderspink.

Among DC’s other properties, “iZombie” bows March 17, joining “Arrow” and “The Flash” on the CW. “Gotham” was renewed for a second season over at Fox.
