Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
Michael Bay is a busy guy. Between making Transformers sequels, the director of such films as Armageddon and Bad Boys also finds time to put together TV projects. The latest one, according to Variety, is called Outsiders.
Don’t get your hopes up, fans of obscure DC Comics teams, this isn’t based on an existing property, but instead on the ideas of Adam Glass, supervising producer of Supernatural and writer of DC’s relaunched Suicide Squad. Like Supernatural, the show has been picked up by The CW as an hour-long drama.
The series will focus on a pair of investigators who find themselves looking into the subcultures of Los Angeles. One’s an uptight cop, while the other is a sociologist who’s an expert in, you guessed it, subcultures. While the world might not be clamoring for yet another mismatched-cop show — especially one that seems like the qualities of Fox’s Bones were thrown into a bag, lightly shaken and rebuilt — Bay will hopefully help bring some spectacle to the proceedings as one of its executive producers.
