A drama based on DC Comics’ Lucifer has been given a put pilot commitment* at Fox, according to our sister site Deadline.

The potential series would find Lucifer — who appeared as a supporting character in DC’s Sandman series before landing his own spin-off — abandoning hell to open a swanky piano bar in Los Angeles called Lux.

Tom Kapinos (Californication) will reportedly write and executive-produce, while Warner Bros. TV will produce with Kapinos’ Aggressive Mediocrity.

(*A put pilot is a deal wherein a network will owe a studio a significant monetary penalty if it does not air the pilot — and all but guarantees the pilot will be picked up.)

    Mark Pellegrino for Lucifer :)

  2. Joey Padron says:

    Cool another DC Comics show is in the works.

  3. Behzad says:

    Is it not enough that superhero comic book adaptations have cluttered the big screen? Do we really need more of that no TV too???

  4. There’s so many DC shows now they’re making ones for characters I’ve never even heard of.

  5. Cideric Rhyes says:

    Would have preceded to see Lucifer on Constantine.

  6. Me says:

    Justin Hartley would be perfect

  7. Charissa29 says:

    We currently have Vampires, werewolves, witches, demons and upirs and angels (oh my!) so really the devil will feel right at home. Sigh. I miss shows about people.

    • Cory says:

      Oh, please. Don’t act as though you’re being put out by a few extra sci-fi/fantasy shows on the screen. This is the first time TV has even HAD so many successful genre shows on the air at once, and you really wanna begrudge that? When you have dozens upon dozens upon dozens of “reality-set” series you can watch? How can you miss something that there’s an oversupply of? Given the number of procedurals on TV, there technically still is a shortage of alternative programming available. And also, based on your statement I’d have to assume you don’t watch many of these genre projects, or you’d know they are at times better at telling “human stories” than shows with only humans as characters.

      • charissa29 says:

        I actually love genre, but procedurals are not about the interactions of people and I want to watch an adult deal with friendship, love and loss without the added issue of running from something that wants to eat that persons face. Call me shallow.

        • Serial Rocker says:

          “and I want to watch an adult deal with friendship, love and loss…”

          So, and with all due respect, get a life! That’s what we all deal with in reality every single day! The last thing we need is more of the same mundane boredom on television. Television gives you the opportunity to escape and deal with things you can’t see in the real world. Reality is full of reality. Television is fantasy and as far as I’m concerned the more fantastic the better. Bring on the genre.

    • There are still shows about people. Still many *more* shows about people than genre shows.

    What is he supposed to look like?

    Tom Welling!! Or maybe Michael Rosenbaum….. all sleek and sexy like he can be.

  9. Ian says:

    Yeah, looks like Fox wants its own Constantine. Why though, when it’s hardly the show to think you need to compete with…? Constantine’s pilot was terrible, they still haven’t landed on a proper direction what with leading characters dropping out and getting replaced, and there are already enough shows in the same genre going on.
    It all just makes me need the 2nd season of Penny Dreadful even sooner.

  10. Cruciatus says:

    Is anyone else seeing John Barrowman?

  11. Rachel says:

    Alexander Skarsgård.

    • jag says:

      best suggestion. Alexander has both the mainstream appeal and the cult or idie vibe which i think is good for the sandman concept. Tom Welling? pass… too much hero. we need an antihero image. Marsters will be great except he will have a limited demo. Barrowman will be great in this. Blond hair? maybe… but the acting will surely be interesting to say the least. Rosenbaum not the right person physically but the acting will pass. Put Alexander or Barrowman in that order.

  12. Aleana says:

    James Laffery Matt Lantar or Tom Welling

  13. Sheldon W. says:

    It will be interesting to see how they work around the character’s Sandman backstory. Plus, the concept is just so lovely.

  14. Whimsical says:

    Pardon the pun, but HELL, YES! Loved the comic series, TV Show would be a must watch. Only problem with having so many good comic shows on TV is they eat up my free time.

  15. Fabe says:

    Well it looks like David Bowie to me haha. However, I still want to see him on Hannibal.

  16. Atalia says:

    James Marsters!!
