HBO Max is continuing work on its Constantine series, and a new report purports to have details on the DC series’ synopsis. As reported in February of last year, HBO Max is developing a new series based on the roguish magician that will be produced by JJ Abrams’ Bad Robot production company. Knight Edge Media has some details on two characters beind cast for as well as the series’ synopsis.

The logline is reportedly as follows:

“The series blends urban action, body horror, and the supernatural on the streets of modern-day London. It follows a young man whose entire world is upended when a chance encounter with a young girl pulls him into the dark and treacherous world of the occult.”

The casting calls are listed as:

“[AKARA] – Female, 10 years old, of Cambodian heritage. The emotional heart of our story. SERIES REGULAR. SPEAKS ENGLISH WITH AN ACCENT. THIS ROLE WILL ALSO SPEAK KHMER, SO PLEASE NOTE LEVEL OF FLUENCY.

[PICH] – Male, 60+ years old, of Cambodian heritage. Akara’s stoical grandfather. Though he doesn’t look it, he is at times stunningly strong despite his age. POSSIBLE SERIES REGULAR. SPEAKS ENGLISH WITH AN ACCENT. THIS ROLE WILL ALSO SPEAK KHMER, SO PLEASE NOTE LEVEL OF FLUENCY.”

It has been reported in the past that the Constantine series will tie into the Justice League Dark show that Bad Robot is also producing. Constantine is expected to begin production in September with London and Morocco as filming locations.
