Hulu Orders Dramas ‘Marvel’s Runaways’ and ‘The First’

Both Hours Expected to Debut in 2018

Hulu is jumping on the growing comic book to series bandwagon with the pickup of “Marvel’s Runaways,” its first series order with Marvel Television. “Marvel’s Runaways,” from Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, the team behind “The O.C.” and “Gossip Girl,” is the story of six diverse teenagers who can barely stand each other but who must unite against a common foe – their parents. The series will explore the younger side of the Marvel Universe in a coming of age, new action series that will premiere on Hulu in the winter.

In addition, Hulu announced a straight-to-series order for “The First” (working title), which is set in the near future and is about the first human mission to Mars. The series is created and written by Beau Willimon (“House of Cards” “Ides of March”), who also serves as executive producer alongside his producing partner Jordan Tappis.
