They were responsible for Stephen King adaptation 11.22.63 starring James Franco, but seeing as Hulu isn’t available in the UK, it remains to be seen where it will call home here.
A brief synopsis for the show has been revealed, and it sounds like it will be sticking closely to the comic book penned by Brian K. Vaughan. “Every teenager thinks their parents are evil. What if you found out they actually were? Runaways is the story of six diverse teenagers who can barely stand each other but who must unite against a common foe – their parents.”
Gossip Girl’s Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage will write and serve as showrunners, and Jeph Loeb, executive producer and Head of Marvel TV, had this to say about the duo. “We’ve known the Runaways’ story would make great 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.”
It’s going to be very interesting seeing how Runaways develops, so stay tuned for updates!
