Freeform, the network previously known as ABC Family, has given a straight-to-series order for “Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger” – a young adult TV adaptation of the comics of the same name.
The live-action interracial romance follows two teenagers, Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson, from very different backgrounds who find themselves burdened and awakened to newly acquired superpowers while falling in love.
She can emit light daggers and he has the ability to engulf others in darkness. They soon learn they are better together than apart, but their feelings for each other make things more complicated.
No writer has been attached to the series, but a search is currently under way.
