Ahead of its January premiere, SYFY has debuted the pilot episode of the Russo brothers' new series, Deadly Class, online.
"A disillusioned teen finds purpose and fights for survival at an elite academy for the Deadly Arts. Deadly Class premieres January 16 at 10/9c on SYFY," the description offers.
The official description also states:
Deadly Class follows a disillusioned teen recruited into a storied high school for assassins. Maintaining his moral code while navigating a ruthless curriculum, vicious social cliques, and his own adolescent uncertainties may prove fatal. Set against the backdrop of late 80s counter culture, Deadly Class is a coming of age story unlike anything you’ve ever seen. Based on the smash hit comic series of the same name by Rick Remender.
Rick Remender and Miles Orion Feldsott adapted the series for TV and are executive producers with Joe Russo, Anthony Russo and Mike Larocca. Adam Targum from Chipmunk Hill also served as executive producer on the pilot, along with Lee Toland Krieger (The Age of Adaline), who also directed.
