TV is Finally Looking to Me for Ideas

Being the Internet’s foremost authority on henchmen, I can only assume that NBC was checking out my blog when they got the idea to start production on a TV show called Hench. Deadline may say that it’s based on an old Adam Beechen comic book, but I’d like to think I know otherwise. Seriously, though, NBC is working on a TV show about henchmen!

The greatest resource known to super-villains

I have long since recognized the fictional opportunities presented by henchmen. They’re just such an untapped market. They appear everywhere, but are always treated as just henchmen. There’s a lot of storytelling potential when looking into the minds of what makes these guys tick, and what they get up to in their daily lives.

The show is described thusly:

A regular guy who, in order to support his family, gets jobs temping for super villains.

That sounds kind of neat. So it sounds like we’ll be seeing multiple super-villains, that could be cool. I like that studio execs are thinking outside the box. They tried to make a straight up superhero TV show – The Cape – but that bombed spectacularly. So now they’re looking into the fringes of this popular genre.

It’s not just about matching costumes and attacking one at a time

I will do my best to keep everyone informed of this show’s progress. For example, if we ever hear anything ever again about this show, I’ll let you know.

  1. this is awesome!!!! Oh and since we are on the topic of super tv shows, any new news on Arrow, or what the tv show that marvel is going to have Joss Whedon direct will be about. i heard it is supposed to be set in the avengers universe but not be about the Avengers directly, but i don’t know anymore then that.

    • That’s all that’s come out about that Joss Whedon show so far. I never got around to writing anything about it, because that’s all there was to tell. As for Arrow, there have been a few more things…I’ll post one of the new trailers later today!
