Deadline reports the pilot will be produced by Gossip Girl creators Josh Schwartz & Stephanie Savage, Marvel Television and ABC Signature. Besides the pilot Hulu reportedly ordered additional scripts should they decide to green light a full season order.
Jeph Loeb, EP and Head of Marvel Television has high hopes for the show, “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.”
Marvel now has TV programming on or in development at ABC, Netflix, Freeform and Hulu.
The Marvel Comics series features a group of teenagers who discover that their parents are part of an evil crime organization known as “The Pride”. Created by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona, the series debuted in July of 2003 as part of Marvel Comics’ “Tsunami” imprint.
