You’ve got to hand it to Kevin Smith – the man is certainly keeping busy. Yoga Hosers is a critical and financial bomb? No sweat, he’s got episodes of The Flash and Supergirl to direct. Clerks III isn’t going to happen? No big deal, he’ll just write a new Jay and Silent Bob movie. He has no interest in directing a Batman movie? Of course he doesn’t! But he will work on another comic book adaptation: a police procedural television series based on Sam Burke and Twitch Williams, two characters who were originally introduced in the pages of Todd McFarlane’s Spawn.
