The CW will potentially expand its comic book-themed TV show universe with “Dr. Mirage,” a drama series based on the Valiant graphic novel of the same name. The project is hailing from “Reign” co-creator Laurie McCarthy, DMG Entertainment, and CBS Television Studios. The logline: “Doctor Mirage talks to the dead…but the only spirit Shan Fong can’t ﬁnd is that of her late husband, Hwen. Instead, America’s favorite semi-retired paranormal investigator is haunted and raw, using her gift to solve homicides and bring peace to the recently bereaved. But when a big-time occultist with a classiﬁed military past hires her for a special job, Shan discovers a lead that might close the greatest mystery she’s ever tackled – how to get Hwen back. Now, Doctor Mirage must enter the undiscovered country and cross all the realms of the underworld, if she has any hope of rescuing the man she loves…or be forever lost beyond the earthly plane.”
The project was previously in development at the CW during the 2016-17 season with “Annabelle” scribe Gary Dauberman writing and DMG Entertainment and CBS Studios producing. It is now being redeveloped, with McCarthy writing the adaptation based on Dauberman’s initial script.
