Based on the graphic novel of the same name, Syfy series Deadly Class is set against the backdrop of late-1980s counter culture and tells the story of a teenager who is recruited into an elite private school filled with children of crime families and affluent lawbreakers.
In a show described as a “coming-of-age journey full of ancient mystery and teen angst,” high school has never been so dangerous.
The series stars Benedict Wong (Doctor Strange), Benjamin Wadsworth (Teen Wolf), Lana Condor (X-Men: Apocalypse), Maria Gabriela de Faria (Yo Soy Franky), Luke Tennie (Shock and Awe), Liam James (The Killing) and Michel Duval (Queen of the South).
In this DQTV video, Deadly Class co-creator and series executive producer Rick Remender introduces this “high school for assassins” and remarks on the appetite viewers have for new ideas and stories.
He also talks about the “creative golden age” in television, which is allowing audiences to take a deeper dive into characters, and partnering on the project with fellow executive producers The Russo Brothers (Avengers: Infinity War).
Deadly Class is produced by Sony Pictures Television and Universal Cable Productions for Syfy, based on the Image Comics graphic novel by Remender and Wes Craig. It is distributed by Sony.
