    Yeah, that's the somewhat confusing part. In July he said he was going to be starting to write the pilot soon and IMDb only says that the treatment was handed in this week and treatments come before scripts. But then, as we know, IMDb isn't always accurate.

    Thought I would dig out this little gem from 2003... #MidnightNation by @straczynski and still an awesome read!!!

    @MulliganMullet And soon very likely to be a TV series....

    Grabbed this from my report on SDCC last July:

    And then came the announcement that Midnight Nation will be done as a TV series with Gale Anne Hurd and Universal. JMS will start writing the pilot in probably two weeks. In answer to a fan later on, JMS said that he's broken out the first season already and worked out a 'B' story about the main character's former partner looking for him. The 'A' story will be exactly as it was originally written. He's planning on writing the entire first season.
    Naturally any and everything could happen in the proverbial meantime but it's nice that it's a multi-year series and he's slated to do a lot of writing.

    I like the sound of it

    I was just watching a youtube video summary of a great show from the 90s, Brimstone, that had a similar vibe. I really liked that show. It even had Peter Woodward in its first/pilot episode. This is a fertile ground for storytelling, I'm sure JMS will do it justice.

    Link for the review of Brimstone.

    started a topic "Midnight Nation" TV Series

    "Midnight Nation" TV Series

    Just found on IMDb:



    JMS has talked about doing a project with Gale Anne Hurd and this looks to be it.

    https://pro-labs.imdb.com/title/tt64...mo_projindev_1 You may not be able to see this unless you've got IMDb Pro.

    Fingers tightly crossed that it survives the development process.
