Check Out the Trailer for NBC’s Constantine

With the television upfronts taking place in New York City this week, all the networks are showing off their line-ups for the fall television season and one of the shows that comic book fans might be looking forward to is NBC's series "Constantine," based on the Vertigo and DC Comics mainstay John Constantine, which just received a series order two days ago.

Starring Matt Ryan ("Criminal Minds") as the chain-smoking supernatural detective first introduced by Alan Moore in Saga of the Swamp Thing before getting his own series Hellblazer , the show also stars Lucy Griffiths (“True Blood”), Harold Perrineau (“Lost”) and Charles Halford.

Produced by Bonanza Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television with writer and executive producer Daniel Cerone (“Dexter”) and executive producer David S. Goyer overseeing it, the show looks like it will be closer to the DC/Vertigo Comics take on the character than the 2005 Warner Bros. feature  starring Keanu Reeves.

NBC have posted an impressive three-minute trailer for the show which you can watch below.
