G.I. JOE Lady Jaye Series In The Works At Amazon From Former DAREDEVIL Showrunner Erik Oleson

G.I. JOE Lady Jaye Series In The Works At Amazon From Former DAREDEVIL Showrunner Erik Oleson

It looks like the G.I. Joe cinematic universe just got a little bit bigger as it's being reported that Amazon is in the early stages of developing a new live-action series centered on Lady Jaye!

Deadline is reporting that Paramount Television Studios, eOne, and Skydance Television are in the very early stages of developing a live-action G.I. Joe series centered on Lady Jaye for Amazon Prime Video.

Erik Oleson will serve as creator and showrunner. To comic book TV fans, his name should sound familiar as he was the showrunner/executive producer on Daredevil season three, as well as a writer/co-executive producer on Arrow season three. As part of his overall deal with Amazon Studios, in addition to the untitled Lady Jaye series, he's also taking over as the showrunner/executive producer on the second season of Amazon's Carnival Row 

Along with his other roles, Oleson will executive produce the new show alongside Lorenzo DiBonaventura, who produced the two G.I. Joe films and is also well known for producing all five entries in Paramount's blockbusterTransformers franchise.  

Lady Jaye was initially introduced in the 1984 animated series, before joining the popular action figure line and being written into the comic books the following year. Adrianne Palicki (The Orville; John WickAgents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) previously played the character in her live-action debut in Jon M. Chu's G.I. Joe: Retaliation, but it's unclear if she'll reprise her role for this project or if the upcoming series will go in an entirely different direction with a new actress. 

No further details are currently available, but it seems probable that we could see the show on the streamer sometime in 2022.
