Scott Buck has been named as showrunner/executive producer for Marvel’s “Iron Fist” TV series on Netflix.
The story focuses on Daniel Rand and his return to New York City after being missing for four years. He fights against the criminal element corrupting New York City with his kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the power of the fiery Iron Fist.
Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel Television, says: “Scott came in with a take on Iron Fist that quite simply knocked us off our feet. We always look for the most creative minds in the field to help us bring our heroes to life, and with Scott we’ve found someone that can deliver yet another great series in the ongoing story of The Defenders.”
The series is the fourth of four planned series in the overall deal between Marvel Television and Netflix. Buck penned various episodes of “Six Feet Under” and “Rome,” and served as showrunner/executive producer of “Dexter” during its final four years.
