Syfy has revealed the teaser for “Deadly Class,” its upcoming series set to premiere early next year. The ever-reliable Benedict Wong (“Doctor Strange,” “Annihilation”) stars in the 1980s period piece, which is set in an elite boarding school catering to crime families and produced by the Russo Brothers. Watch the teaser below.
Here’s the logline: “Set in a dark, heightened world against the backdrop of late 80s counter culture, ‘Deadly Class’ follows the story of Marcus (Benjamin Wadsworth), a teen living on the streets who is recruited into Kings Dominion, an elite private academy where the world’s top crime families send their next generations. Maintaining his moral code while surviving a ruthless curriculum, vicious social cliques and his own adolescent uncertainties soon proves to be vital. Based on the best-selling 2014 Image Comics graphic novel by Rick Remender and Wes Craig, ‘Deadly Class’ is a coming of age journey full of ancient mystery and teen angst.”
