Adi Shankar, the producer behind the likes of Dredd and The Grey and the fanmade shorts Punisher: Dirty Laundry, Venom: Truth in Journalism and Power/Rangers, is set to make his directorial debut with the “dark superhero drama” Gods and Secrets.
Deadline reports that the show “will mine territory similar to Alan Moore’s Watchmen, exploring the darker logical underpinnings of superhero tropes. In a world in which superheroes exist, personal foibles and the resulting celebrity culture are front and center. In the story, tragedy has struck the superheroic team Guardians of Justice, and in its aftermath secrets are revealed, lives are changed, and the war to end all wars begins.”
Set to feature in the cast of Gods and Secrets are Jackson Rathbone, Kellan Lutz, Sharni Vinson, Andy Milonakis and Diamond Dallas Page.
