Set photos from the live-action DC Universe original series Doom Patrol have surfaced online.
Doom Patrol stars April Bowlby and Diane Guerrero was spotted filming scenes for the upcoming series in Atlanta, Georgia this Friday. April Bowlby is portraying Elastic-Woman while Diane Guerrero is portraying Crazy Jane. Stunt doubles for Robotman and Negative Man were also seen on set filming with the actresses.
The quirky DC superhero team is set to make their first live-action debut in the fifth episode of Titans before spinning off into their own exclusive original series for the DC Universe digital streaming service. The show is being produced by Arrowverse architect Greg Berlanti with Geoff Johns, Jeremy Carver, and Sarah Schechter serving as executive producers. Carver who worked on shows such as Frequency, Being Human, and Supernatural is writing the series. Warner Bros. Television has ordered 13-episodes for the first season of the series.
Recent additions to the show’s cast have included Joivan Wade as Victor Stone/Cyborg, Brendan Fraser as Robotman, and Alan Tudyk as Negative Man.
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 PATROL will 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.
Doom Patrol is one of six original shows being developed for the DC Universe digital streaming service which includes Titans, Swamp Thing, Young Justice: Outsiders, Stargirl, and Harley Quinn.
Doom Patrol is slated to premiere on the DC Universe digital streaming service in 2019.
