That's right, after many years of speculation and rumors, The Disney-owned company Freeform, previously (ABC Family) has greenlit the project with a straight-to-series order, meaning they will skip the "Pilot" process.
It will be based on the Marvel characters Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson who become Cloak and Dagger respectively. two teenage runways from very different backgrounds, with Tandy being the daughter of a famous super model and Tyrone having lost his friend when he was unjustly shot and killed by police.
They were soon sold to a criminal organization for illegal chemical testing. They survived their tests and ran away but discovered Tyrone had been engulfed by darkness and was hunted by a constant hunger, which Tandy satisfied with her glowing light. They then decided to combat drug-dealers, help runaway children and developed a romance.
According to Variety, the series will be a superhero love story aimed at their "Becomers" or "young adult" audience, ages 14-34.
