The DC Comics comic book property Secret Six is being developed into a drama series by CBS. This is a comic that I’m not really familiar with, but judging from the description, it sounds like it will be an intriguing show.
Secret Six follows “six morally ambiguous strangers, each with their own unique specialties and secret pasts. They are brought together by an enigmatic figure who blackmails them into working as a team to expose the corruption of the corporate and political elite.”
The Secret Six has had a rotating roster of members over the years that includes Bane, Harley Quinn, Lex Luthor, Mad Hatter, Penguin, Deadshot, Cheshire, Scandal Savage, Fiddler, Catman and more. I imagine the series will focus more on the lesser known characters.
The series seems like it will be very similar to Suicide Squad as it centers on a team of misfit rogues who are forced to do good. Who knows, maybe Secret Six will do it better!
The series will be written by Rick Muirragui (Suits) who will also be an executive produce alongside Bill Lawrence (Scrubs) and Jeff Ingold.
Is this a DC series you’d be excited about watching?
