Get ready for Booster Gold to get the prime time exposure he craves. The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that SyFy wants to bring the character to the small screen. They've ordered a pilot for a one-hour drama based on the character.
The show will involve Greg Berlanti's Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television. Other projects include No Ordinary Family, Brothers & Sisters and Green Lantern. Berlanti will serve as executive producer. Andrew Kreisberg will write the script as well as executive produce.
The story will have Booster as a washed-up athlete from the future who goes back in time hoping to become the world's greatest superhero. As in the comics, his focus is on fame and fortune.
We'll have to stay tuned to see if the show moves beyond the pilot stage.
