During the big event yesterday in which James Gunn and Peter Safran, co-CEOs of DC Studios, unveiled Gods and Monsters, their plan to renew the DCU, they announced five new tv seriesincluding one that Safran describes as “a Game of Thrones-esque story about Themyscira,” the birthplace of Wonder Woman.

That live action series, called Paradise Lostwill take place before the birth of Wonder Woman and will tell the origin story of the Amazon nation, which according to Safran “involves all the darkness and drama and political intrigue behind this all-female society.”

“How is your policy?” Gunn adds. “What are their rules? Who’s boss? What are all the games they play to get to the top?”

However, the first TV series under Gunn and Safran’s new plan will be Creature Commandos, an animated series for which Gunn has written all seven episodes and it will go into production soon. In it, Amanda Waller creates a black ops team out of monstrous prisoners, and Gunn anticipates that “we’re going to hire actors who can play the characters in both this and other things.”

Amanda Waller will also have her own series.

Speaking of that powerful political figure, Amanda Waller will also have her own series, simply titled Waller, which will feature the return of Viola Davis in the title role, along with other members of The Peacemaker team. It will take place between seasons 1 and 2 of The Peacemaker and is written by Christal Henry (Watchmen) and Jeremy Carver (Supernatural).

It is also prepared Lanternswhich, according to Safran, is a “True Detective-type mystery” featuring two famous Green Lanterns, Hal Jordan and John Stewart.

“That brings us to the overall story that we’re telling across the different movies and TV series,” Gunn says of Lanterns. “And we found this ancient horror on Earth, and these guys are basically supercops.”

Closing out the announced television series, which are all being developed for HBO Max, is Booster Gold, which follows a man who uses basic technology from the future to pretend to be a superhero in the present.. Gunn says they’re already in talks with an actor for the lead role.

“I think of it basically as a superhero story is impostor syndrome, and how to deal with it.” Gunns says. “How is he trying to use this technology of the future to be loved by people today? And what’s really at the base of that? And it’s a character study that’s going to be a very different kind of show.”
