'The Boys' to come to Amazon as series

'The Boys' to come to Amazon as series”

The Boys is coming to Amazon.

The eight-episode Prime Original Series will be co-produced by Sony Pictures Television Studios and created and written by showrunner Eric Kripke (Supernatural), and directed by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen (Preacher), according to a news release.

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are about to add another comic book adaptation to their resumes. Are you guys still on board with Rogen and Goldberg adapting more Ennis after Preacher? Considering superhero shows are in vogue and wildly popular, this show will fall in line with the type of programming that Amazon is expected to pursue in the coming months and year. The studio has just picked up a series order for Rogen's original one-hour superhero drama "The Boys", the streaming service announced Wednesday.

"We are very happy to have the unique opportunity to produce a second series based on the subversive and innovative world of Garth Ennis", says Chris Parnell, Co-President of Sony Pictures Television Studios, said in a statement. Garth Ennis (Preacher) and Darick Robertson, who created the comic book on which the series is based, are also slated to co-executive produce.

Like with Preacher, which had gone though numerous TV and feature incarnations over 16 years until it was finally made by AMC, The Boys also has had a long development history.

The Boys comic book series is set in world where superheroes have embraced the darker side of fame and centers on a group of vigilantes informally known as "the boys" who make it their mission to take down corrupt superheroes with nothing but blue-collar grit and a willingness to fight dirty.

There is no word yet on an anticipated premiere date or who could be cast for the series, but all of that will come out in time, and we're excited to be covering this show that could help launch Amazon Video into a better position to compete with Netflix and Hulu.
