Another DC comic series is headed to the small screen. Variety reports that CBS has committed to a pilot for a drama series based off Secret Six.
Rick Muirragui (Suits, Charmed) will write and executive produce Secret Six for CBS. Bill Lawrence (Scrubs, Rush Hour) and Jeff Ingold (Rush Hour, Undateable) will also serve as executive producers.
Secret Six debuted in 1968 and has followed four different teams of six, led by a shadowy figure codenamed Mockingbird. Team members have included Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Lex Luthor, Bane, the Joker, and more.
In the comics, the members of the team are blackmailed into working together by Mockingbird, whom members often suspect to secretly be one of the other five. The role of Mockingbird has been held down by different characters as well, including Lex Luthor.
