The CW Developing TRACI THIRTEEN Series

As The CW continues to develop its DC-driven shows with next year’s Black Lightning, the network is now eyeing its next DC project. As reported by Variety, The CW is getting set to develop a show based around Traci Thirteen and her pops, Dr Terrance Thirteen.

Who, some of you may ask? Well, Traci Thirteen first appeared back in 2003’s Superman #189. Not only is her father a super smart professor, but her mother just so happens to be the sorceress Meihui Lan. As such, Traci herself has certain unique abilities such as magical sight and the ability to sense what’s about to happen.

For The CW show – titled Project 13 at this stage – Elizabeth Banks is on board as an executive producer, with the hour-long drama series depicting Traci as “a twenty-something forensic scientist and believer in the paranormal who discovers her own hidden extra-sensory abilities when she joins her estranged, skeptic father to investigate mysterious cases of the paranormal and unexplained phenomena.”

As well as Banks, Daegan Fryklind will serve as an executive producer as well as writing the series. Project 13 will be produced through Bank and Max Handelman’s Brownstone Productions banner. And before you ask, at this early stage it’s not known whether Project 13 will tie in with The CW’s Arrowverse of shows just yet.

Expect more on Project 13 as it continues to develop.

TITANS Adds Ryan Potter as Beast Boy

As the live-action Teen Titans series continues to flesh out its cast, the fan favourite Beast Boy has been brought in to the fold.

Officially announced by DC Entertainment, Titans has brought in Ryan Potter to play the much-loved Gar Logan character. Potter is likely best known to genre fans for providing the voice of Hiro in Big Hero 6 and the upcoming Big Hero 6 TV series.

For those unfamiliar with Beast Boy, the show’s official blurb on him reads: “As a child, Garfield “Gar” Logan contracted the lethal disease, Sakutia, while on an African expedition with his geneticist parents. Treated with an experimental drug, Gar survived but not without developing some bizarre side effects. Along with skin and hair turning permanently green, the wisecracking, fun-loving Beast Boy is able to reshape himself into any animal of any size he can imagine.”

Already on board for Titans are Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, Lindsey Gort as Detective Amy Rohrbach, and Alan Ritchson and Minka Kelly as the Hawk and Dove duo.

The early synopsis on the series reads:

Titans follows a group of young soon-to-be Super Heroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In this action-packed series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes, including Starfire, Raven and many others. Titans is a dramatic, live-action adventure series that will explore and celebrate one of the most popular comic book teams ever.

Titans will premiere next year on Warner Brothers’ new on-demand streaming service.
