SYFY is continuing to search for new and different shows for their network and they are dipping their toes into the comic book world again.
SYFY has ordered a pilot for a new series based on the Rick Remender and Wes Craig Image Comics series Deadly Class. The series, which is creator owned by Remender, focuses on Marcus Lopez, a student at an exclusive high school who has to deal with the same everyday issues that all kids face including getting the attention of his crush, avoiding bullies and passing his classes. The only difference is that the school that Marcus is attending is staffed with and attended by the next generation of assassins sent there by the world’s top crime families.
The Russo Brothers are known for directing series television as well as Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War and the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War. Rick Remender will be working on the adaptation as well. No premiere date has been announced with the series in the development phase, so we will have to wait and see if the series gets picked up.
