hourman222According to The Hollywood Reporter, The CW is developing yet another TV series based on a DC Comics character and this time it’s the pretty obscure Hourman. Michael Caleo of “The Sopranos” will pen the pilot which will be produced by Dan Lin and Lin Pictures’ head of television Jennifer Gwartz.

The site describes this new version of the character as follows:

“A brilliant-yet-troubled pharmaceutical analyst who discovers that the visions that have plagued him since childhood are actually glimpses of tragic events occurring one hour in the future. Determined to win back his ex-wife and son, he heroically prevents these tragedies from unfolding, finding both purpose and redemption along the way.”

Originally created in 1940 by Ken Fitch and Bernard Bailey, Hourman has not had a very prolific life in the comics having been reimagined as different characters multiple times.
