While numerous other announced series remain a bit of a mystery, DC revealed a pretty detailed synopsis of the new show. Aside from Doom Patrol, he is producing CBS's God Friended Me and Red Line and The CW's All American.
The series is a re-imagining of a group of characters described as "outcast super heroes" - Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Girl and Crazy Jane, led Dr Niles Caulder, also known as The Chief. On the animated side, DC Universe has Young Justice: Outsiders and Harley Quinn. Alan Moore's beloved Swamp Thing is also in development for the DC digital service, which is poised to launch this year.
Following the usual tragic-superhero origin trope, all Doom Patrol members suffered terrible accidents that gave them superhuman abilities but left them physically and emotionally scarred.
"Part support group, part super hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of super-powered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them".
Doom Patrol has a thirteen-episode first season and will be written by Jeremy Carver (Supernatural) with Berlanti, Geoff Johns, Jeremy Carver, and Sarah Schechter executive producing. Johns is the chief creative officer of DC Entertainment while Berlanti is no stranger to DC's superheroes, responsible for bringing The CW's Arrowverse to life. He's also the TV Editor for IGN.
Even in a crowded field of pickups and cancellations, Doom Patrol is likely to get noticed: not only is it a spinoff from a series that has not yet premiered, but it is yet another series from Greg Berlanti, the super-producer whose shingle now has more shows on TV than anyone in history.
Look for Doom Patrol next year. And the DC Universe sounds like it's going to be giving us some great television.
