Nicole Kassell To Helm The “Watchmen” Pilot

Nicole Kassell (“The Woodsman”) has been set to pen the pilot for the “Watchmen” TV series at HBO.

The pilot was written by Damon Lindelof based on Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ iconic limited comic series – a darkly satirical and dystopian take on the superhero genre.

Kassell previously helmed two episodes of HBO’s “The Leftovers” which was run by Lindelof, and has done episodes of “Westworld,” “The Americans,” “Better Call Saul,” “Rectify” and the upcoming “Castle Rock”.

Kassell and Lindelof will both executive produce the “Watchmen” pilot and Warner Bros. Television has also reportedly ordered backup scripts.
