‘DC Super Hero High’ Series From Elizabeth Banks In The Works At HBO Max
During WarnerMedia’s HBO Max event, it was announced that Warner Bros is developing a new comedy series based on DC Comics. DC Super Hero High, a live-action half-hour comedy series, will be executive produced by Elizabeth Banks.
The series will follow a group of students experiencing the fun and drama of adolescents at a boarding school for gifted kids. These teens are trying to navigate the pressures of high school. However, none of them realize that someday they will become legendary DC Super Heroes.
Produced by Brownstone Productions in association with Warner Horizon Scripted Television, the series will feature a bevy of heroes fans know and love. In addition, Max Hendelman (Pitch Perfect) will serve alongside Banks as executive producer.
Scott Weinger (Fuller House) will write the series. Additionally, John D Beck (Disjointed) and Ron Hart (According to Jim) are attached to produce.
The series should not be confused with DC Super Hero Girls: Super Hero High, the animated series on Cartoon Network. However, both share a similar premise of young female heroes in high school before becoming iconic DC heroes.
DC Super Hero High will follow DC’s previous live-action, half-hour comedy series on NBC Powerless. That series told the stories of everyday citizens in the world of DC heroes. It starred Vanessa Hudgens and Alan Tudyk and lasted 12 episodes before facing cancellation.
