Netflix has greenlit “The Magic Order,” which is based on the original story (and comic book series) by Mark Millar. The series tells the tale of families of magicians sworn to protect our world must battle an enemy who’s picking them off one by one. The logline: By day they live among us as our neighbors, friends and co-workers, but by night they are the sorcerers, magicians and wizards that protect us from the forces of darkness — unless the darkness gets them first.
James Wan (“Aquaman; Furious 7”) and Lindsey Beer (“Chaos Walking;” “Sierra Burgess is a Loser”) will executive producer with Mark Millar. In addition, Wan will direct the debut episode and Lindsey Beer will serve as writer/showrunner for the series.
Netflix in 2017 acquired Millarworld, the comic book publisher founded by Millar which has spawned stories such as “Wanted,” “Kick-Ass” and Old Man Logan.
