"Static Shock" Live-Action TV Show In The Works

Warner Bros.' new digital division, named Blue Ribbon Content, just unveiled an impressive slate of digital programming that includes a number of interesting projects.  According to The Hollywood Reporter, there's another Mortal Kombat digital series in the works, the animated Justice League series from Bruce Timm and a live-action Static Shock series from writer-producer-director Reginald Hudlin (Django Unchained).  

Static Shock — Writer/producer/director Reginald Hudlin (Best Picture Oscar nominee for producing Django Unchained) leads the creative team behind a live-action adaptation of Static Shock, featuring the African-American super hero Static, aka Virgil Ovid Hawkins. Static Shock is based on the Static comic co-created by the late Dwayne McDuffie with co-writer Robert L. Washington III and artist John Paul Leon, which was originally published by the DC Comics imprint Milestone Comics and, later, by DC Comics. Milestone Media co-founder/comic book artist/TV producer Denys Cowan (the original Static Shock animated series) is collaborating with Hudlin on the new Static Shock

Blue Ribbon Content is headed by Sam Register, creator of Cartoon Network and a producer with a number of animated DC superhero projects under his belt, including Teen Titans, Young Justice, Beware the Batman and a host of others. Given Register's penchant for superhero projects, hopefully this means Static Shock is the first of many superhero ventures from Blue Ribbon.
