'Teen Titans' TV Series 'Titans' Pilot to Shoot in 2015

Titans TV series pilot to begin filming in 2015

There are several DC comic book-inspired television shows on the air right now, and their numbers may only increase over the year ahead. CBS is planning to launch a Supergirl TV series in time for the Fall 2015 TV season; Syfy just revealed that it is developing a Superman prequel series, titled Krypton; and TNT is working on a live-action Teen Titans show, called Titans, that we can now confirm will enter the pilot production stage in 2015.

Titans will revolve around onetime Batman sidekick-turned superhero Dick Grayson, alias Nightwing, as he puts together a band of new superheroes whose ranks will also include classic Titans like Starfire and Raven... but perhaps not also Cyborg, whom Ray Fisher will be bringing to life on the big screen, starting in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016. (Mind you, that's not a given yet, concerning whether some other version of Cyborg will appear on Titans.)

The Titans program is being written by Oscar-winner Akiva Goldsman (Fringe) and co-produced by Marc Haimes (The Legend of Zorro). Titans is most certainly not TNT's first excursion into proper action genre television before - not for the channel that airs such sci-fi/action programs as Falling Skies and The Last Ship - but it will mark the first time the network has dipped its feet into the pool of superhero entertainment.

When, exactly, the show will premiere on the network, is a question that remains to be answered. However, DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns has revealed that the Titans pilot will enter production next year (see below), so a late 2015/early 2016 premiere date would appear to be a possibility.
