Damon Lindelof -- whose credits include Lost and The Leftovers -- wrote the pilot and is executive producing the project.

Based on the graphic novels by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, the superhero series comes a decade after a Watchmen film featuring Billy Crudup, Carla Gugino, Malin Akerman, Jackie Earle Haley, Matthew Goode, Patrick Wilson and Jeffrey Dean Morgan was released in theaters.
