NBC Orders Three More Scripts for Constantine. NBC is showing good faith in their upcoming series Constantine that the network has ordered three additional scripts ahead of its premiere. This should encourage fans to watch the show and if successful, it may even get a full season pick-up.
Deadline first reported the good news that the Hellblazer comics adaptation received just two weeks before its premiere episode. Picking up additional scripts have become a common practice for network television series. Similar orders were given for The CW’s The Flash and Jane the Virgin before their premiere dates. According to the site, picking up backup scripts can be inexpensive for the network to buy a few extra weeks in order to get the writers working on future episodes. Once executives see promise in their shows, networks can then decide to order more episodes.
Constantine follows a detective that investigates the supernatural and becomes a savior of Earth in the battle between good and evil. John Constantine is also dragged into a war between the angels and demons. Executive produced by David S. Goyer and Daniel Cerone, the first episode will be directed by Neil Marshall.
Constantine stars Matt Ryan, Lucy Griffiths, Harold Perrineau, Sir Maejor, Charles Halford, Miles Anderson, Julia Lehman, Mark Ashworth, Victor McCay, Chris Matheny, Fernando Martinez, Joey Phillips, Hillary Brant, Amy Lynn Tuttle, and Daryn Kahn.
