Syfy has picked up to series Deadly Class, based on the critically acclaimed Image Comics graphic novel by Rick Remender and Wes Craig, from The Avengers directors Joe and Anthony Russo, Sony Pictures TV and Universal Cable Productions.
Set against the dark and gritty backdrop of late 1980s counter culture, Deadly Class centers on a homeless teenager named Marcus Lopez who suddenly gets recruited into King's Dominion High School for the Deadly Arts, an elite private school where the world's most domineering crime families send their next generation of assassins to be trained in hopes of keeping their lineage of unlawfulness alive. Adam Targum, Rick Remender, Miles Orion Feldsot, Mike Larocca, and Lee Toland Krieger serve as executive producers alongside The Russo Brothers. An episode count and premiere date have not been announced. The series is drenched in the trappings of the punk rock counterculture of the era.
