Hulu & Marvel Team for Runaways Series


SANTA MONICA: Marvel Television and Hulu are adapting the Runaways comics as a series for the streaming service.

Based on the comic created by the award-winning team of Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona, the series will be brought to life by co-showrunners/writers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage (The O.C., Gossip Girl). ABC Signature Studios is co-producing.

Marvel’s Runaways tells the story of six diverse teenagers who can barely stand each other but who must unite against a common foe: their parents.

“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.”

“I’m a long-time fan of Runaways and couldn’t be more excited to bring Brian and Adrian’s characters to life,” said Schwartz.

Savage added, “Josh and I can’t wait to get to work for Marvel and Hulu.”
