TNT is hopping on the comic book wave.

The Turner-owned cable network is nearing a pilot-production order for Titans, a drama based on a group of super heroes-to-be, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

From Warner Horizon Television and DC Comics, the drama hails from writers Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind, I Am Legend, Lobo) and Marc Haimes. Goldsman will exec produce, while Haimes will serve as a co-EP.
Based on characters from DC Comics, Titans revolves around a group of young superheroes-to-be who are recruited from every corner of the DC universe. 

The action-themed drama centers on Dick Grayson, who emerges from the shadow of Batman to become Nightwing, the leader of a fearless band of new superheroes including Starfire, Raven and more. The show is described as a dramatic adventure series that will explore and celebrate one of the most popular comic book titles ever.

The team of teen superheroes first appeared in a 1964 issue of The Brave and the Bold as a "Junior Justice League" featuring Robin (aka Dick Grayson), Kid Flash (Wally West) and Aqualad (Garth). They were later joined by Wonder Girl (Donna Troy) and Green Arrow's sidekick, Speedy (Roy Harper).   

The series was revived in 1980 and relaunched as The New Teen Titans, aging the characters to young adults. Robin, Wonder Girl and Kid Flash were replaced by Cyborg, Starfire and Raven, among others. 

The comic has gone through several incarnations in the years since, with concurrent series Titans launching in 2008 featuring members including Nightwing, Cyborg and Raven. It's unclear which additional DC characters could be introduced in TNT's adaptation.
