NBC Developing HENCH; A 'Super Villain' Themed TV Show

There aren't too many details available right now, but NBC has apparently started development on a new TV series called Hench. While it's not based on a pre-existing comic book, it will focus on a man who temps for super villains in order to look after his family. Read on for details.

Deadline reports that NBC have started developing Hench, a new TV series from Peter Berg and Sarah Aubrey's Film 44 and Universal TV. The site describes it as, "a high-concept drama," so exactly how much of an influence it will take from the world of comic books is unknown. However, with Alexandra Cunningham (the writer of NBC's Prime Suspect US remake) on board to pen the script for the pilot, it may end up being a fairly serious affair. Regardless, the premise of Hench is definitely an intriguing one as it, "centers on a regular guy who, in order to support his family, gets jobs temping for super villains." What do you guys think?
