The Next Comic Related Television Series May Be Teen Titans

TNT may soon stand for The New Titans… or something like that. THR is reporting that Teen_Titans_0001TNT network is close to ordering a pilot for a live-action Teen Titans television series. Calling it Titans, the series is about a group of super heroes-to-be and focuses on Dick Grayson as he transitions from being Batman's sidekick Robin to his new role as Nightwing. The report says that the team will be made up from all corners of the DC Universe and will include Starfire, Raven and more…

Akiva Goldsman and Marc Haimes are putting the series together.

With the mention of Starfire and Raven and the fact Wally West and Roy Harper are tied up with CW series most likely means that this is going to focus on the 80's incarnation of the team that included Beast Boy, Cyborg, etc. But is Cyborg is now tied to the movies? Also, how much of a change would we get in characters like Beast Boy (all green) and Starfire (orange and scantily clad), their look and powers could be cost prohibitive to a cable channel series.
