A ‘DOOM PATROL’ series is in the works! The show will be joining ‘TITANS’, ‘SWAMP THING’, ‘YOUNG JUSTICE: OUTSIDERS’ & ‘HARLEY QUINN’ as a part of DC’s streaming service, DC Universe! Here’s a brief synopsis of the upcoming show:
“DOOM PATROL is a re-imagining of one of DC’s most beloved group of outcast Super Heroes: Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Girl and Crazy Jane, led by modern-day mad scientist Dr. Niles Caulder (The Chief). The Doom Patrol’s members each suffered horrible accidents that gave them superhuman abilities — but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found purpose through The Chief, who brought them together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence — and to protect Earth from what they find. Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of super-powered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them. Picking up after the events of TITANS, DOOM PATROL will find these reluctant heroes in a place they never expected to be, called to action by none other than Cyborg, who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse, but with a warning that is hard to ignore: their lives will never, ever be the same.”
The series will star Bruno Bichir, April Bowlby, Jake Michaels, Dwain Murphy. DC Universe has ordered 13 episodes of Doom Patrol, which hails from Berlanti Productions, in association with Warner Bros. Television. The one-hour drama is written by Jeremy Carver (Supernatural, Being Human), who will executive produce alongside Greg Berlanti, Geoff Johns, and Sarah Schechter. Production is expected to begin later this year for a targeted 2019 debut on DC Universe.
