CW Orders Apocalypse Pilot ‘The Messengers’
The CW has ordered an apocalyptic sci-fi drama pilot from CBS TV Studios and Clash of the Titans producer Basil Iwanyk, Deadline reports.
Written by Eoghan O’Donnell (Teen Wolf), The Messengers begins with a mysterious object crashing to Earth and a group of seemingly unconnected strangers dying from its energy pulse. But then they awaken to learn they’ve been charged with preventing a coming apocalypse.
The Messengers joins a CW pilot slate that already boasts the Arrow spinoff The Flash, the Vertigo adaptation iZombie, the Supernatural spinoff Tribes, the thriller Identity and the soap opera Jane the Virgin.
