DESCRIPTION:
(from Syfy's press release, April 2018) 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."
