Eric Kripke, the former show-runner for Supernatural, was originally set to adapt the DC, Vertigo comic The Sandman into a televion show. However his plans fell through with that idea for "varying reasons", at least for now. But Deadline.com has reported that he is now set to bring the DC character Deadman to televion screens. Deadman follows the story of Boston Brand who after being murdered,has his soul given the ability to inhabit other bodies and use that to fight against evil. More details should develop soon.
