CW Ditches Robin-Themed Graysons

The CW and Warner Bros. TV have ditched plans for “The Graysons”, a pilot for a potential series set to revolve around Batman’s sidekick Robin in his pre-Caped Crusader days reports Variety.

WB Group president Jeff Robinov, who initially gave his blessing, changed his mind in recent days and yanked the project as “the concept doesn’t fit the current strategy for the Batman franchise” according to an official statement.

The show was to be set in modern times and focus on young DJ as he faced challenges involving first loves, young rivals and his family — a famous juggling act — as he grew up.

The CW had been planning to use the show to fill the void left by “Smallville” which is currently in its potentially final eighth season.
