It looks like HBO is finally ready to pull the trigger on a Watchmen series, which will be helmed by showrunner, Damon Lindelof. The Watchmen comic book is considered by many as one of the most engaging pieces of literature ever produce with a hard hitting storyline that relates close to elements that plagued the world in the 80s. The Alan Moore book was brought to life by Zack Snyder in 2009 but it would seem that this new incarnation will be more closely related to the original source material due to the longer series format.
