Witchblade is coming back to television. And it’s in good hands with two of television’s biggest female producers.
Emmy-nominated Carol Mendelsohn, best known for her work in the CSI television franchise on CBS, has partnered up with The Vampire Diaries showrunner Caroline Dries to give Witchblade another shot at the small screen. And at least for now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, it will find a home on NBC.
Sony Pictures Television has the rights to the comic book, which launched in 1995 by creators Marc Silvestri, David Wohl, Brian Haberlin and Michael Turner. Warner Bros. Television had the rights originally, in turn producing two seasons of Witchblade for TNT starring Yancy Butler in 2001.
