NEWSFLASH- Booster Gold, the series?

Booster Gold may get a series nod on SyFy according to this story on the Hollywood Reporter. It will be a one hour drama produced by Greg Berlianti (No Ordinary Family, Green Lantern).

Booster Gold (as any faithful 'bot knows...) is a washed up football player from the future who steals some gear to come back in time and become a superhero... and make a few bucks while doing so.

We last saw Booster on Smallville. So, what do you guys think? Will this be worth our valuable time, or will it be yet another slam on capitalism?
