Aquaman a Hit... on iTunes

Yahoo news reports:
Aquaman is a hit--and this time iTunes, not Vincent Chase, can take credit.

The TV pilot based on the all-wet DC Comics superhero was one of the iTunes Music Store's most-played clips Tuesday, the same day the rejected series became available for download on the online music/video purveyor.

Aquaman, developed for the outgoing WB, and rejected by the incoming CW, was the biggest curiosity piece brought to iTunes as part of a new deal between the Apple Computer service and Warner Bros.


At one point Tuesday, the 41-minute Aquaman pilot was in fifth place--and rising--on iTunes' rankings of its top TV shows.


In a recent interview with WizardUniverse.com, Gough said the reasons for the CW snub are "a mystery." It wasn't the pilot's fault, he said.

"We're really proud of the pilot," Gough told the Website. "I think it definitely puts Aquaman in a modern context, and he's not lame."

Gough said he hoped fans would get to see the show. Presumably, the writer-producer was talking about something like the iTunes deal--and not the unauthorized clips that had popped up on the Web in recent months.
