HBO In Early Discussions For A Watchman TV Series
Look out world. Dr Manhattan’s infamous blue schlong could be heading to HBO… and the mind boggles what the seemingly sex-obsessed cable channel would make of that. Seriously, though, after rumours began circulating late yesterday, HBO confirmed that it is indeed in early discussions with Watchmen movie director Zack Snyder about a possible Watchmen TV series (insert Alan Moore grumbling here).
