We knew that Damon Lindelof’s Watchmen series based on Alan Moore and Dave Gibbon’s iconic comic was coming to HBO in October and now we know exactly when the Regina King-starrer will debut

WATCHMEN premieres SUNDAY, OCT. 20 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO.

 Set in an alternate history where masked vigilantes are treated as outlaws, WATCHMEN, from executive producer Damon Lindelof (Emmy® winner for “Lost”; HBO’s “The Leftovers”) embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel of the same name, while attempting to break new ground of its own. Nicole Kassell directs the pilot from a script written by Lindelof. 

WATCHMEN is produced for HBO by White Rabbit in association with Warner Bros. Television; executive producer/writer, Damon Lindelof; executive producer/director, Nicole Kassell; executive producer, Tom Spezialy; executive producer/director, Stephen Williams; executive producer, Joseph Iberti. Based on the iconic graphic novel co-created and illustrated by Dave Gibbons and published by DC.
