Marvel’s New Warriors gets cast for Freeform live-action comedy series

by on Jul.10, 2017, under Television

Freeform picked up a 10-episode straight to series order for Marvel’s New Warriors several months ago, but The Hollywood Reporter today announced that the cast has been set, including the coveted role of Squirrel Girl.

Milana Vayntrub (This Is Us) and Derek Theler (Baby Daddy) will take up the lead roles of Squirrel Girl and Mister Immortal, respectively. Also joining the cast are Jeremy Tardy (War Dogs) as Night Thrasher, Calum Worthy (Austin & Ally) as Speedball, Matthew Moy (2 Broke Girls) as Microbe and Kate Comer (Hello, My Name Is Doris) as Debrii.

The scripted comedy series, a first from Marvel Television, follows six young people with powers living and working together. Not quite super, not yet heroes and with powers and abilities on the opposite end of the spectrum of The Avengers, the New Warriors want to make a difference in the world, even if the world isn’t ready. The series is about the entry into adulthood when you feel like you can do everything and nothing at once – except in this world, bad guys can be as terrifying as bad dates.

Kevin Biegel (Couger Town, Scrubs) is executive producer and showrunner, with Jeph Loeb (head of Marvel Television) and Jim Chory (Heroes, Daredevi) also executive producing.

by on Oct.06, 2016, under Television

My entire family is happy today now that Freeform (formerly ABC Family) has finally renewed Stitchers for a third season! Stars Emma Ishta and Kyle Harris announced it on Facebook Live:

Stitchers follows a secret government team that “stitches” into the memories of the recently deceased in order to find out what they witnessed before their death. It stars Emma Ishta as Kirtsen, the recently recruited “stitcher” with no sense of time or when to stop talking; Kyle Harris as Cameron, the neuroscientist and lead researcher; Ritesh Rajan as Linus, the bioelectric engineer; Eureka alum Salli Richardson-Whitfield as Maggie, the leader of the team; and Warehouse 13 alum Allison Scagliotti as Camille, Kirsten’s roommate and computer expert.
