A Doom Patrol TV series joins Young Justice Season 3, Titans, Harley Quinn, Swamp Thing and Metropolis on the upcoming new DC streaming digital network.
Doom Patrol will spin out of the live-action Titans series consisting of 13 episodes.
The series is described as:
Doom Patrol is a re-imagining of one of DC’s most beloved group of outcast Super Heroes: Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Girl and Crazy Jane, led by modern-day mad scientist Dr. Niles Caulder (The Chief). The Doom Patrol's members each suffered horrible accidents that gave them superhuman abilities — but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found purpose through The Chief, who brought them together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence — and to protect Earth from what they find. 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. Picking up after the events of Titans, Doom Patrolwill find these reluctant heroes in a place they never expected to be, called to action by none other than Cyborg, who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse, but with a warning that is hard to ignore: their lives will never, ever be the same.
As noted, characters from Doom Patrol will first appear in Titans including Bruno Bichir as The Chief, Jake Michaels as Robotman, and April Bowlby as Elasti-Girl.
The series is a one-hour drama from Greg Berlanti, Geoff Johns, Jeremy Carver, and Sarah Schechter, with the pilot written by Carver.
