They attempted this before with Zack Snyder, but it fell through in 2015.

Damon Lindenof is now creating the series and everything Snyder had done has been scrapped.

This will be HBO's first foray into the superhero genre.

If he's involved, then it's already a flop.

I don't think he's involved. He's just sharing his views about the source material...

"WATCHMEN on HBO - calling it now, it is the 2 or 3 ways the show MUST depart from the source material that will determine fans acceptance!"

and

"I can't see a straight adaptation of Watchmen. Why bother. The film is 8 years ago. Gotta pick your spots to depart the material."

This is going to be a disaster, everyone already knows the ending, no surprises, what's the point?

If they make the story a prequel it has a chance. Nobody wants to see a rehash of the same material.

Prequel, yeah! Show the Watchmen actually being the Watchmen for 4 or 5 seasons, and then do the ending story in the last season.
