AceShowbiz - Marvel continues its expansion. After bringing "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." to ABC and "The Defenders" members to Netflix, now they are taking "Runaways" to Hulu. The project has got a pilot order at the streaming service.
From "Gossip Girl" creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, the show is adapted from Marvel's comic book series of the same name. It follows a group of diverse teenagers who are fighting their parents after finding out they are part of an evil organization.
"I'm a long-time fan of Runaways and couldn't be more excited to bring Brian and Adrian's characters to life," Schwartz said. Savage chimed in, "Josh and I can't wait to get to work for Marvel and Hulu."
"We've known the Runaways' story would make great television," said Jeph Loeb, EP and Head of Marvel 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."
