SYFY PICKS UP IMAGE'S KILLER HIGH SCHOOL COMIC "DEADLY CLASS" TO SERIES

Get some band-aids ready. Image Comics' bloody, clever tale Deadly Class is officially coming to SYFY. The network has picked up the live action project, based on Rick Remender and Wes Craig's 2014 comic, to series. The show will be produced by the Russo Brothers.

The story is set in the counter-culture of the late 1980s and tells the story of a teenager who is recruited into an elite private school filled with the children of crime families and affluent criminals. It'll track these social circles as they try to survive "ruthless curriculum, vicious social cliques" and the adolescent uncertainties that transcend even the most dangerous of high school settings. Put simply, high school has never been this deadly. The network describes the project as a "coming of age journey full of ancient mystery and teen angst."

The comic itself is still ongoing at Image Comics, with issue #33 having hit shelves last week.

"We're committed to developing graphic novels for SYFY and have found a rich, compelling, truly unique world in Deadly Class," said Bill McGoldrick, President, Scripted Content, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, in a statement. "Our producing partners expertly combined high school angst, 80s nostalgia and comic flair into a beautifully realized, visually arresting pilot that truly brings Rick and Wes' acclaimed comic series to life."

Deadly Class is set to star Benedict Wong (Doctor Strange,), Benjamin Wadsworth (Teen Wolf), Lana Condor (X-Men: Apocalypse), Maria Gabriela de Faria (Yo Soy Franky), Luke Tennie (Shock and Awe), Liam James (The Killing) and Michel Duval (Queen of the South).

The series will be executive produced by the Russo Brothers (Avengers: Infinity War), along with Rick Remender, Miles Orion Feldsott and Mike Larocca (Spy). Adam Targum (Banshee) also served as executive producer on the pilot, and Lee Toland Krieger (The Age of Adaline) directed.

The Deadly Class series order is only the latest line-up change for SYFY, which is also prepping a series based on George R.R. Martin's terrifying sci-fi tale Nightflyers. The network has also debuted critical and commercial hits such as Happy! and Krypton over the past year, and the space opera The Expanse recently returned for its third season.
