SyFy has ordered a pilot based on DC’s Booster Gold.
Created by Dan Jurgens in 1986, Booster Gold is really a former athlete from the future named Michael Jon Carter who gambled on his own games and got banned from football. He stole some time-travel and crime-fighting tech from a museum and slipped back in time to the present, where he planned on becoming a beloved and well-compensated hero. Instead, he became a laughing stock.
Presumably, the hour-long series—the pilot for which will be written by Warehouse 13‘s Andrew Kreisberg and executive produced by Greg Berlanti (No Ordinary Family, Green Lantern)—will track Booster’s transformation into the real deal.
The character has previously appeared on Smallville. The pilot will be for a brand new take on the character.
