Overlook is a horror-thriller series inspired by characters from Stephen King's haunted hotel tale, The Shining, and Justice League Dark will re-imagine some famous characters from the DC Comics universe.

No casting for the projects has been announced.

"What an amazing start to our association with the wildly imaginative Bad Robot team under J.J. and Katie," Kevin Reilly, chief content officer for HBO Max and president of TNT, TBS and truTV, said in a press release. "What could be better than an original J.J. idea and then Warner Bros. letting them loose on iconic I.P. from Stephen King and the DC Universe and to provide more must-have programming on HBO Max."

HBO Max is launching next month with a library of new and classic WarnerMedia films and TV shows.
