Alec Holland is described as: "Passionate biologist Alec Holland is caught in the crosshairs of a small town nightmare when he discovers a freaky local illness may be connected to his work in the swamp".

Deadline is reporting that actor and stunt performer Derek Mears (who played Jason Voorhees in the 2009 Friday the 13th reboot) has been tapped to play the swamp hero in his hulking plant form, while actor Andy Bean will play the character in his human guise of Alec Holland. Mark Verheiden (Battlestar Galactica, Netflix's Daredevil) and Gary Dauberman (It) are attached to co-write the series and act as showrunners, with James Wan (Aquaman) set to executive-produce the series alongside Verheiden, Dauberman, and Michael Clear.

The story follows Abby Arcane (Crystal Reed) as she investigates what appears to be a deadly swamp-born virus in the small Louisiana town of Marais.

You can't exactly make a Swamp Thing television show without casting someone to actually play Swamp Thing. It is produced by Atomic Monster is association with Warner Bros.

DC Universe's Swamp Thing is scheduled to be released sometime in 2019 on their exclusive streaming service.
