Marvel is expanding its TV footprint to Hulu.
The streaming service has handed out a pilot and full-season script order for Marvel comic series Runaways, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
From Gossip Girl creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, the potential project is based on Brian K. Vaughan (Y: The Last Man) and Adrian Alphona’s series. It centers on a group of teens who discover that their parents are part of an evil crime organization.
Runaways, written by Schwartz and Savage, will focus on six diverse teens who can barely stand each other but who unite to fight a common foe: their parents.
The drama hails from Marvel Television, ABC Signature — ABC Studios’ cable-focused arm — and Schwartz and Savage’s studio-based Fake Empire. Schwartz and Savage will serve as showrunners and exec produce alongside Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb, Jim Chory and Fake Empire’s Lis Rowinski.
For Marvel, should Runaways go to series, it would join ABC’s Agents of SHIELD and multiple dramas at Netflix, including Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Defenders and The Punisher, and comes as the comic book giant recently bid farewell to ABC’s Agent Carter. Also in the works are Fox’s X-Men take and FX’s Legion, the latter of which has already been picked up to series.
