Pilot Episode of “Judge Dredd: Mega-City One” TV Series is Written and Moving Forward

It’s been such a long time since we gave you an update on IM Global and independent U.K. games developer and publisher Rebellion Productions’ “Judge Dredd: Mega-City One” TV series, but today we have something very exciting for you.

If you’re unfamiliar with the happenings of the upcoming Dredd TV series, you can read the plot information below, along with the latest news

Set in a future where the East Coast of the U.S. has become a crowded and crime-ridden megalopolis. It will be an ensemble drama about a team of Judges — futuristic cops invested with the power to be judge, jury, and executioner — as they deal with the challenges the future-shocked 22nd century throws at them.

How is the project progressing? Well, THR caught up with series producer Brian Jenkins of Rebellion Productions for the latest update on the project.

Jenkins is proud of the talent he’s working with:

It’s been really exciting to be working with Rob on the pilot. We have a really talented team here at Rebellion Productions and I’m really proud of them. Jason and I have been busy looking at locations and laying out season one as we gear up, to move forward into pre-production.

Rebellion CEO Jason Kingsley is very pleased with the progress:

I’ve read the pilot script by Rob and the team, and got that same thrill I did when I first discovered Judge Dredd. As we drive this project forward I’m always surprised by how much effort goes on behind-the-scenes to bring something like Mega-City One to the screen. I’m very pleased with how the whole project is coming together and looking forward to more exciting announcements in the coming months.
