I suppose it’s just one of those days. Judge Dredd: Mega-City One has just been revealed by Entertainment Weekly, as a live-action television show, just in time for Dredd’s 40th anniversary this year. No other information is available on the show, but attached as executive producers of the new show are IM Global Television president Mark Stern, and the owners of U.K. games developer and publisher, Rebellion, Jason and Chris Kingsley, who also served as executive producers of the 2012 Dredd film.
“This is one of those seminal sci-fi properties that seems to only become and more relevant with age,” IM Global Television president Mark Stern said. “Not only is it a rich world with biting social commentary, but it’s also fun as hell! As a fan of the comics and both films, it’s a dream come true to be able to work with Jason and Chris in adapting this for television.”
“We’re very excited to be beginning the journey to get more of Judge Dredd’s Mega-City One on the television screen,” said Rebellion owners Jason and Chris Kingsley. “Thanks to the legions of fans who have kept up pressure on social media, and a lot of background work and enthusiasm, we aim to make a big budget production that will satisfy both our vast comics audience and the even greater general screen-watching public.”
