Constantine the TV series on NBC

Constantine (Matt Ryan)
NBC has ordered the new series Constantine, based on characters from DC Comics Hellblazer. Constantine is about a supernatural detective who defends the world against the dark forces of Hell! Constantine stars Matt Ryan (of Criminal Minds) as detective John Constantine, as well as Sons of Anarchy‘s Harold Perrineau; True Blood‘s Lucy Griffiths, and True Detective‘s Charles Halford. Another DC Comics show has been added to the airwaves. Lets hope this time around Constantine is more like the comics and less like the Keanu Reeves version made back in 2005. 
John Constantine: Hellblazer
Matt Ryan as Constantine (He certainly looks the part)

UPDATE: Trailer and Synopsis after the break.

Full synopsis from NBC:
Constantine: Based on the wildly popular comic book series “Hellblazer” from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine (Matt Ryan, “Criminal Minds”) specializes in giving hell… hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wickedly naughty wit, he fights the good fight — or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he’s decided to leave his do-gooder life behind, but when demons target Liv (Lucy Griffiths, “True Blood”), the daughter of one of Constantine’s oldest friends, he’s reluctantly thrust back into the fray – and he’ll do whatever it takes to save her. Before long, it’s revealed that Liv’s “second sight” — an ability to see the worlds behind our world and predict supernatural occurrences — is a threat to a mysterious new evil that’s rising in the shadows. Now it’s not just Liv who needs protection; the angels are starting to get worried too. So, together, Constantine and Liv must use her power and his skills to travel the country, find the demons that threaten our world and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows… maybe there’s hope for him and his soul after all. The cast also includes Harold Perrineau and Charles Halford. Writer Daniel Cerone (“The Mentalist,” “Dexter”) serves as executive producer with David S. Goyer (“Man of Steel,” “The Dark Knight Rises”). “Constantine” is produced from Bonanza Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. The show is based upon characters published by DC Entertainment.
