Attention Netflix subscribers: Now that you've already binged away your life on "House of Cards" and "Orange is the New Black," there's some good news.

A new show is in the works!

Netflix has bought the rights to produce an original TV series based on the dark children's books, "A Series of Unfortunate Events."

And here's what Lemony Snicket (i.e. author David Handler) himself has to say about it:

"I can't believe it," Mr. Snicket said, from an undisclosed location. "After years of providing top-quality entertainment on demand, Netflix is risking its reputation and its success by associating itself with my dismaying and upsetting books."

A film version based on the first book starring Jim Carrey was released back in 2004.

Are The X-Men Coming To TV?

Here's another rumored Superhero show to add to the mix, the X-Men may be coming to television. Apparently, Fox is already dead set on bringing the license to TV, but with no official announcement, there are no details. We know that X-Men: Apocalypse will be focusing on the First Class cast, maybe the show will center itself around the modern day students of Xavier's School For Gifted Youngsters.

What do you think? Is this too many superhero shows? Personally, I still can't get over Mutant X.

CBS Picks up Supergirl TV Show

The recently rumored Supergirl TV show has officially been picked up by CBS. Arrow and The Flash creator, Greg Berlanti will team up with Chuck producer Ali Adlerto to make the show about Superman's Kryptonian cousin, Kara Zor-El.

If you're keeping score that means DC has a show on every network channel, except ABC (owned by Disney). Marvel may have the silver screen, but DC is taking over our living rooms.
