Get your best look yet at a new featurette for HBO’s Watchmen, the new series coming this October that aims to blur the lines between superheroes and supervillains. When everyone wears masks, it becomes increasingly difficult to separate the forces of good from the forces of evil, but this new show inspired by Alan Moore‘s seminal graphic novel will take a lot of liberties in the gray area between the two extremes.
Led by creator Damon Lindelof and featuring commentary from star Regina King and director/producer Nicole Kassell, the creative team explores the themes of Watchmen in this featurette, which also offers plenty of highlights of the new HBO show. Also starring Don Johnson, Jean Smart, and Jeremy Irons, Watchmen arrives on HBO on Sunday, October 20th at 9/8c.
