Syfy Orders Script Based on DC Comics' 'Booster Gold' (Exclusive)
10:13 AM PST 11/22/2011 by Lacey Rose

The project, which will be penned by "Fringe's" Andrew Kreisberg, hails from Greg Berlanti's production company.

Syfy is looking to bring Booster Gold to life on the small screen.

The NBCUniversal cable network has ordered a pilot script for the one-hour drama based on the DC Comics franchise.

The project, which hails from Greg Berlanti's Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television, will count Berlanti (Brothers & Sisters, No Ordinary Family, Green Lantern) as an executive producer. Fringe's Andrew Kreisberg, who collaborated with Berlanti on ABC's Eli Stone, is on board to pen the script and executive produce. DC Comics will also receive an EP credit.

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 comic book character made an appearance in the 10th and final season of the CW's Smallville, where it gained still more fans.

Berlanti and Kreisberg, whose other credits include Warehouse 13 and Red Faction: Origins, are both repped by WME.

Hm. I'm guessing this isn't a Smallville spinoff then.

Dan talks about booster gold:
http://comicbookmovie.com/fansites/debbiedowner/news/?a=52302
Recently news was announced that SyFy Channel had ordered a pilot for the character Booster Gold, which you created. Will you have any input on that television show?

Not at present.

Is there anything about Booster Gold that you think may not translate to the television series?

No. I think the concepts that surround Booster fit TV very, very well. Who better to put on TV than a guy who always wants to be on TV?

Booster Gold is a fame whore, and when he was created we didn't have the Kim Kardashians of the world or the the Spencer Pratts. Do you think Booster Gold should embrace some of the modern techniques of becoming famous without doing much of anything to earn it?

I wouldn't go that far.

The basic concept of who Booster is and what he wants fits the world today even better than 1985. But it's important to remember that he's a hero as well. "Fame whore" is too strong and too negative, in terms of a description. It's just that, while other heroes are content to have their work go unrecognized, Booster enjoys the recognition, fame and financial rewards that can be a part of it.

A great running gag with Booster Gold is that he has been confused with other superheroes, or people don't say his name properly. First, is that something that you came up with? Secondly, do you think that will be part of the show?

Yeah, I believe I took that approach back when the character first debuted. I have no idea if it would be part of the show.

Do you think the show will introduce villains from the DC Universe, or come up with new villains?

I assume it would be a mixture of both.

If the show can introduce a villain from the DC universe who would you like to see go up against Booster Gold?

Probably a time based villain, like The Time Trapper.

Do you expect the character will have the ability to fly?

Oh, yeah. It's an indispensable part of who he is.

Dude is handing in the script soon.

I'm a lot more interested in Booster Gold than that Arrow shit, I can tell you that.
