Los Angeles: The duo behind “Gossip Girl” -Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage have been attached to Marvel’s “Runaways”.
Schwartz and Savage are taking their shot at the comic book craze for a teen-centric drama on Hulu, reported Deadline.
Hulu has ordered a pilot script for Marvel’s “Runaways,” based around a group of super-powered teens who discover their parents are part of a crime syndicate.
The teens can barely get along, but they must learn to work together in order to get even with their evil mums and dads.
“I’m a long-time fan of Runaways and couldn’t be more excited to bring (creators Brian K Vaughan and Adrian Alphona’s) characters to life,” Schwartz said.
“Josh and I can’t wait to get to work for Marvel and Hulu,” his partner Savage added.
The Runaways team was created back in 2003 by Marvel – and over the years has included expert strategist Alex Wilder, super-Skrull Xavin, actual dinosaur Old Lace and even X-Men member Jubilee just to name a few.
“We’ve known the Runaways’ story would make great television and being lucky enough to have Josh and Stephanie – who have time and again created shows that speak so genuinely to this exact audience – write and produce the series is nothing short of remarkable,” Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb said.
