Live Action ‘Doom Patrol’ Series Coming To DC Universe



Warner Bros. and DC Comics new streaming service has added another live action series to their platform in Doom Patrol.

Earlier this month Warner Bros announced Titans (live action), Young Justice: Outsiders (animated), Harley Quinn (animated) and Swamp Thing (live action) would be the first four series coming to the forthcoming subscription service.

The hardest working executive producer in Hollywood Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash & more) will exec produce alongside DC Entertainment president Geoff Johns and Jeremy Carver (Supernatural), who will pen the series.

The Doom Patrol originally written and drawn by Arnold Drake, Bob Haney and Bruno Premiani.

The show is described as a reimagining of one of DC’s most beloved group of outcast superheroes: Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Girl and Crazy Jane and led by modern-day mad scientist Dr. Niles Caulder (The Chief). The Doom Patrol’s members each suffered accidents that gave them superhuman abilities — but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found purpose through The Chief, who brought them together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence — and to protect Earth from what they find. Part support group, part superhero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of super-powered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them. The drama picks up after the events of Titans — which is also in the works at DC Universe and produced by Berlanti — Doom Patrol will find the reluctant heroes in a place they never expected to be, called to action by Cyborg, who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse, but with a warning that is hard to ignore: their lives will never, ever be the same.

The Doom Patrol will appear on the fifth episode of DC Universe’s live action series Titans. Bruno Bichir as The Chief; April Bowlby as Elasti-Girl, Jake Michaels as Robotman and Dwain Murphy as Negative Man.
