Hulu has greenlit a drama called “Runaways,” based on the fan-favorite Marvel Comic books. It comes from “Gossip Girl” creators Josh Schwartz & Stephanie Savage, Marvel Television and ABC Signature and the order is for a pilot plus additional scripts and a potential season-long episode order. Created by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona, “Runaways” will tell the story of six diverse teenagers who can barely stand each other but who must unite against a common foe – their parents.
“Marvel’s Runaways” is executive produced by series co-showrunners/writers Schwartz and Savage along with Marvel’s Head of Television, Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Jessica Jones,” “Marvel’s Luke Cage”) and Jim Chory (“Marvel’s Daredevil,” “Marvel’s Jessica Jones.”) “Fake Empire’s” Lis Rowinski will produce as well.
“We’ve known the Runaways’ story would make great television,” said Jeph Loeb, Executive Producer 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.”
