In 2014, Rick Remender and Wes Craig, along with colorist Lee Loughridge and letterer Rus Wooton, launched Deadly Class. Fortunately, Syfy's provided a synopsis that sort of lays out what's going on in the upcoming science fiction series based on a novella by George R.R. Martin, author of the A Song of Ice and Fire books that inspire HBO's Game of Thrones series.
Syfy is amping up their 2018-2019 lineup with two new shows from some familiar names! The series follows eight maverick scientists and a powerful telepath who embark on an expedition to the edge of our solar system aboard The Nightflyer - a ship with a small tightknit crew and a reclusive captain - in the hope of making contact with alien life.
The show will take place in San Fransisco in 1987.
SYFY has released a first look at the new series Deadly Class, which comes from The Avengers: Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo. The series, set in the late 1980s, chronicles the teen's attempts to hold on to his moral compass in the face of a disreputable peer group and curriculum set on producing the world's next wave of violent criminals. Gene Klein, David Bartis and Doug Liman from Hypnotic; Alison Rosenzweig and Michael Gaeta of Gaeta Rosenzweig Films; and Lloyd Ivan Miller and Alice P. Neuhauser of Lloyd Ivan Miller Productions also serve as executive producers. Buhler's also executive producing along with Brian Nelson, Mike Cahill and Andrew McCarthy.
"Deadly Class is one of the more twisted coming-of-age stories we've ever read", executive producer Joe Russo says in the teaser.
Deadly Class is a coming of age journey full of ancient mystery and teen angst.
Doctor Strange star Benedict Wong has been cast in the series in addition to actors including Benjamin Wadsworth, Lana Condor, Michel Duval and María Gabriela de Faría. "It'll track these social circles as they try to survive "ruthless curriculum, vicious social cliques" and the adolescent uncertainties that transcend even the most risky of high school settings".
