'The Boys' Spinoff Series Set at Superhero College in Development at Amazon
Craig Rosenberg will write pilot for potential series
Amazon is fast-tracking development on a spinoff series to “The Boys,” TheWrap has learned.
Craig Rosenberg is writing the pilot and will act as showrunner on the potential series, which is set at a superhero college run by Vought International, under his overall deal with “The Boys” studio Sony Pictures Television.
Here’s the official description for the project, inspired by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s comic book series, the basis for Amazon’s “The Boys”: Set at America’s only college exclusively for young adult superheroes (and run by Vought International), the “Untitled Boys Spinoff” is an irreverent, R-rated series that explores the lives of hormonal, competitive Supes as they put their physical, sexual, and moral boundaries to the test, competing for the best contracts in the best cities. Part college show, part “Hunger Games” — with all the heart, satire and raunch of “The Boys.”
The spinoff series would be produced by Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television in association with Point Grey Pictures, Kripke Enterprises and Original Film. Along with Rosenberg, executive producers include “The Boys” showrunner Eric Kripke, Point Grey Pictures’ Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and James Weaver, and Original Film’s Neal H. Moritz and Pavun Shetty. Ennis and Robertson also serve as executive producers.
