Written by Remender and Miles Feldsott who will also serve as executive producers the Deadly Class is an unlikely coming-of-age story set against the backdrop of late 80’s counter culture which 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.
Sony Pictures Television and Universal Cable Productions will produce.
