"As we drive this project forward I'm always surprised by how much effort goes on behind-the-scenes to bring something like 'Mega-City One' to the screen," said "Mega-City One" executive producer Jason Kingsley.
"I'm very pleased with how the whole project is coming together..."
"'Judge Dredd: Mega-City One' is set in a future where the East Coast of the US has become a crowded and crime-ridden megalopolis.
"A team of 'Judges' — futuristic cops invested with the power to be judge, jury, and executioner deal with the challenges the future-shocked 22nd century throws at them..."
The series will be produced by IM Global Television president Mark Stern, CEO Stuart Ford and Jason and Chris Kingsley, who along with Ford were executive producers on the last "Dredd" feature (2012) starring Karl Urban, who is ready to reprise the role for the TV series.
In the original comic series, inspired by Clint Eastwood's "Dirty Harry", 'Dredd' is a uniformed judge, combining powers of police, judge, jury and executioner.
With 'bionic' eyes implanted after a time-traveling mission to the 'City Of The Damned', Dredd carries a 'lawgiver' pistol.
Their growth was artificially accelerated until they emerged in 2066 with education and world knowledge electronically implanted in their brains by CPU during gestation.
The name 'Dredd' was chosen by genetic scientist 'Morton Judd' to instill fear in the criminal community.
In 2070, during the 'Atomic Wars', the Dredds saw action for the first time as cadets, temporarily fast-tracked through the 'Academy Of Law', assigned the rank of full judges and sent to restore order, following the US Justice Department deposing the President.
Joseph continued to excel as a Judge, rapidly gaining promotion to the rank of 'Senior Judge', during 'World War 4'.
