NBC has picked up a live-action drama adaptation of Midnight, Mass., a supernatural comic-book series from DC Comics' Vertigo imprint, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts (Roswell, Pushing Daisies) are on board to write the project for Warner Brothers TV and studio-based Jinks/Cohen Co, the trade paper reported:

Midnight, which has received a script commitment with penalty from the network, revolves around Adam and Julia Kadmons, a sophisticated, sexy, globe-trotting husband-and-wife team who solve mysteries and crimes of the supernatural.

John Rozum's Midnight, Mass. has been among the most heavily pursued of DC Comics' properties for a TV series adaptation by sister company WBTV.
