SYFY has released a first look at the new series Deadly Class, which comes from The Avengers: Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo.
The series is based on on the critically acclaimed Image Comics graphic novel by writer Rick Remender and artist Wes Craig, who provided art for the 2008 Guardians of the Galaxy comic that inspired the Marvel movie.
Deadly Class premiers next year.
Deadly Class is a coming of age journey full of ancient mystery and teen angst. Set in a dark, comic book world against the backdrop of late 80s counter culture, it follows a homeless teen recruited into a storied elite private school where the world’s top crime families send their next generations. Maintaining his moral code while surviving a ruthless curriculum, vicious social cliques and his own adolescent uncertainties soon proves to be vital.
Rick Remender and Miles Orion Feldsott adapted the series for TV and are executive producers with Joe Russo, Anthony Russo and Mike Larocca . Adam Targum from Chipmunk Hill also served as executive producer on the pilot, along with Lee Toland Krieger (The Age of Adaline), who also directed.
