The Judge Dredd: Mega City One TV show gets some concept art

A couple of days ago I posted the news that there was a chance Karl Urban could be Judge Dredd in the Mega City One TV show.

IM Global and independent U.K. games developer and publisher Rebellion have struck a deal to make Judge Dredd: Mega City One, a high-end TV series based on the globally-famous character from the pages of legendary British comic book 2000 AD, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year.

Set in a future where east coast America has become a crowded and crime-ridden megalopolis, the show 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.

Today IGN has shared these new pieces of concept art for the show.

‘Democracy March’, shows the suspended streets packed with people amidst the Mega-City skyline (including the Statue of Liberty). The title may well be a reference to the events of “America”, one of the Judge Dredd comic series’ most well-loved storylines, which tackled some incredibly heavy themes, and saw a major change in Dredd’s depiction.

‘Lowlife Arrival’, shows the deepest levels of Mega-City One. The original ‘Low Life’ comic storyline followed Judges operating in Mega-City One’s slums, and those imposing headlights might well show them turning up to do the same.

So it seems we will be getting a show following a number of different Judges going to many different places in Mega City One. The potential for this show is incredible. Dredd doesn’t even have to be in every episode, he could just be the legend that he is who shows up when things get really bad.

What do you want to see in the Mega City One TV show?
