Syfy Orders Script For New TV Show Based On DC Comics Character Booster Gold

Syfy has ordered a pilot script from Fringe writer Andrew Kreisberg for a small screen adaptation of Booster Gold. We have all the details here.

The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively revealed SyFy's plans for a small screen adaptation of Booster Gold. The network has reportedly ordered a pilot script for what will be a one-hour drama from Fringe writer Andrew Kreisberg. Greg Berlanti's production company will oversee the project in association with Warner Horizon Television. It will credit both Berlanti (Green Lantern, No Ordinary Family) and Kreisberg as executive producers. DC Comics are expected to receive similar credit.

They also reveal a few details about the premise of the planned series.

The story will center on Booster Gold, a washed-up athlete from the future who travels back to the present in hopes of becoming the greatest super hero of all time. Instead of chasing criminals, however, his main priority is chasing fame and money. But Booster Gold discovers that being a hero takes more than just a megawatt smile, and that the future doesn’t happen without first protecting the present.


The character of Booster Gold was created by writer/artist Dan Jurgens in 1986 and has since become a prominent member of the DC Universe, currently serving as leader of Justice League International as part of the New 52. Booster's only live action appearance was earlier this year in the 18th episode of the final season of Smallville. CBM recently caught up with the creator of the character, and you can read all of his thoughts on that appearance and more by clicking here.
