THE BOYS Live-Action TV Drama From Seth Rogen And Evan Goldberg Lands At Amazon Studios

A year ago, it was revealed that Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson's The Boys was being developed for TV by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Neal Moritz, who currently produce Preacher for AMC.

News on what Seth Rogen and co. were doing with their live-action adaptation of The Boys has been scarce since the original announcement back in April 2016.  Now, Variety has revealed that the project has landed at Amazon Studios, the same home of  Jeffrey Tambor's award-winning Transparent.

The series has officially entered production at Amazon and will be a 1-hr drama written by Eric Kripke. Amazon is reportedly weighing whether to bypass a pilot commitment and give the project a straight-to-series order. 

If you're feeling a bit jaded with the current state of superhero television and films, The Boys will certainly grab your attention.  The 72-issue comic series is full of sex, drugs and morally-ambiguous characters that make it decidedly unclear who's exactly on the side of good and evil.


This is going to hurt!

In a world where costumed heroes soar through the sky and masked vigilantes prowl the night, someone's got to make sure the "supes" don't get out of line. And someone will! Billy Butcher, Wee Hughie, Mother's Milk, The Frenchman, and The Female are The Boys: A CIA-backed team of very dangerous people, each one dedicated to the struggle against the most dangerous force on Earth - superpower! Some superheroes have to be watched. Some have to be controlled. And some of them - sometimes - need to be taken out of the picture. That's when you call in The Boys!

The Boys Vol. 1: The Name of the Game collects the first six issues of the hit series The Boys by Garth Ennis (Preacher, The Punisher) and drawn by Darick Robertson (Transmetropolitan, Wolverine)!
