Boston Brand may possess your televisions (Get it? Because that's his power) in the not too distant future, as the classic DC Comics character better known as Deadman is being developed as a series for The CW. Created by Arnold Drake and Carmine Infantino but illustrated most famously by Neal Adams, Boston Brand is a murdered circus performer who inhabits the bodies of the living as a means to investigate the truth behind his death. The Deadman television series is being developed by Eric Kripke, creator and executive producer of The CW's long-running Supernatural.
