When CDC researcher Abby Arcane returns to her childhood home of Houma, Louisiana, in order to investigate a deadly swamp-borne virus, she develops a surprising bond with scientist Alec Holland — only to have him tragically taken from her. But as powerful forces descend on Houma, intent on exploiting the swamp’s mysterious properties for their own purposes, Abby will discover that the swamp holds mystical secrets, both horrifying and wondrous — and the potential love of her life may not be dead after all.
Based on the DC characters created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson, Swamp Thing is coming to the new DC digital service as a one-hour live-action drama.
Warner Bros. Television is teaming up with Atomic Monsters and the one-hour drama is going to script-to-series.
It is being executive produced by James Wan (Atomic Monster), Mark Verheiden, Gary Dauberman, Michael Clear (Atomic Monster), co-produced by Rob Hackett (Atomic Monster), and written by Mark Verheiden and Gary Dauberman.
The series is aiming for a 2019 launch.

We were recently made aware of some deeply troubling allegations regarding one of our showrunners. We have been encouraging and fully cooperating with the investigation into this by Warner Bros.
There is nothing more important to us than the safety and well-being of our cast, crew, writers, producers and any staff. We do not tolerate harassment and are committed to doing everything we can to make an environment that’s safe to work in and safe to speak up about if it isn’t.
The investigation revolves on some accusations including what’s described as an “inappropriate” interaction with a female writer and “hostile work environment.” The situation has also been called a “toxic” environment. Another complaint cited “inappropriate behavior” by Kreisberg.
