Titans to start casting and production this summer

- This TNT Teen Titans show, which focuses on Nightwing, will probably start production and casting summer of 2015
- the pilot is being written by Oscar winner Akiva Goldsman (who wrote A Beautiful Mind, but also wrote Insurgent...)
- TNT President hopes this will be different from the other comic book tv shows and still true to the comics

Info from IGN (about the pilot):
- Dick Grayson will be Robin at first, patrolling Boston, and then become Nightwing in the show
- Barbara Gordon will be a wheelchair bound computer hacker in the pilot, and she won't use her Oracle name yet (don't think she ever was a Teen Titans character in the past)
- Hawk and Dove will be a romantic pairing
- Raven and Starfire will show up at the end of the pilot. There might be a love triangle between Starfire, Robin, and Barbara

- Cyborg and Beast aren't in the pilot

TNT President also said, "“There were consequences to things that happened; it wasn’t somebody died and they moved on. There was the first superhero to be an addict [in Roy Harper’s Speedy]. It’s a coming-of-age story for Robin, who feels like Batman has betrayed him.”
