Writer Mark Millar’s (Kingsman, Kick-Ass) latest comic book series The Magic Order is coming to life on the streaming service Netflix and the series will have some powerhouse names behind it.
James Wan (Aquaman; Furious 7) and Lindsey Beer (Chaos Walking; Sierra Burgess is a Loser) have joined Mark Millar as executive producers of The Magic Order, the new Netflix series from the mind of Millar. In addition, Wan will direct the debut episode and Lindsey Beer will serve as writer/showrunner for the series.
Official synopsis for The Magic Order:
Five families of magicians sworn to protect our world must battle an enemy who’s picking them off one by one. By day they live among us as our neighbors, friends and co-workers, but by night they are the sorcerers, magicians and wizards that protect us from the forces of darkness — unless the darkness gets them first.
The Magic Order was created in-house at Netflix by Mark Millar and later turned into a comic-book, written by Millar and illustrated by the legendary Marvel artist Olivier Coipel, based on designs created by the team at Netflix.
