A new TV series has been announced. Judge Dredd: Mega-City One will have the same executive producers as the 2012 movie, though it sounds like it won't be a follow-up with Karl Urban reprising the role.

The world of Judge Dredd is coming to TV screens thanks to a deal struck between leading independent entertainment studio IM Global and independent UK games developer and publisher Rebellion.

The deal will see development begin on Judge Dredd: Mega-City One, a high-end TV series based on the globally-famous character from the pages of legendary British comic book 2000 AD, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year.

Set in a future where east coast America has become a crowded and crime-ridden megalopolis, the show will be an ensemble drama about a team of Judges – futuristic cops invested with the power to be judge, jury, and executioner – as they deal with the challenges the future-shocked 22nd Century throws at them.

Early development has begun on the show, and talent will be announced at a later date.

Attached to the production as Executive Producers are President of IM Global Television, Mark Stern, who developed critically-acclaimed series Battlestar Galactica, Helix, and Defiance at Syfy, IM Global Television CEO Stuart Ford, and the owners of Rebellion, Jason and Chris Kingsley, who along with Ford, were also executive producers on the 2012 DREDD feature film adaptation from DNA Films, Reliance Entertainment and IM Global.

Shame if they can't include Urban, since he's not above tv shows

I don't know if he'll be in it or not, I hope he is. The info was from an email newsletter I get after signing the petition to get a Dredd 2 made. The "talent will be announced at a later date" part is what lead me to believe he won't be in it but I guess it's possible they mean they're waiting to reveal the cast when they have all characters filled, or maybe even talking about writers and directors.

I hope he does return, he killed it in the movie and seemed genuine in how much he enjoyed the character and would like to return to it.

Strontium Dog fan film. 20 mins long and quite impressive for a fan flick I recon.
