Russos Confirmed For “Deadly Class” Series

Joe and Anthony Russo (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Avengers: Infinity War”) are confirmed to be executive producing a TV series adaptation of the graphic novel “Deadly Class ” at Syfy with the network picking up the project to pilot.

Created by Rick Remender and Wes Craig, the story is set against the backdrop of late 1980s counter culture and follows a disillusioned teen recruited into a storied high school for assassins.

Maintaining his moral code while surviving a ruthless curriculum, vicious social cliques, and his own adolescent uncertainties may prove fatal. Adam Targum will serve as showrunner and Lee Toland Krieger will direct.
