January 20, 2017 Witchblade Comic Book Optioned
Now that Rob Liefeld’s entire catalog has been optioned, networks are scrambling for the next ’90s property and NBC has settled on Witchblade, by Marc Silvestri, a series which ran from 1995-2015 for 185 issues.
The show will be executive produced by Carol Mendelsohn (CSI) and written by Caroline Dries (The Vampire Diaries). Top Cow founder/owner Silvestri and Matt Hawkins will also exec produce. Witchblade was previously adapted for television by TNT in 2001, with a separate movie announced for 2009, which never happened.
Witchblade follows Sara Pezzini, a NYPD homicide detective who comes into possession of the Witchblade, a supernatural, sentient bracelet which bonds with a female host and provides them with a variety of powers in order to fight supernatural evil.
