Benedict Wong Deadly Class

The premise of Deadly Class revolves around King's Dominion, a secret school that trains would-be assassins in the "deadly arts".

A new trailer for the SyFy series Deadly Class from Avengers: Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo has dropped online.

The series is based on author George R.R. Martin's novella and the 1987 film of the same name. But when terrifying and violent events begin to take place, they start to question each other, and surviving the journey proves harder than anyone thought.

Comic co-creator Rick Remender, who is also attached to Deadly Class as an executive producer, notes that the adaptation will seriously impress fans.

Anthony and Joe Russo are working on the show and with their work on Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captiain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, they've earned my trust when it comes to them adapting comic book stories.

The first look trailer doesn't show a ton of the plot line, but if you've read the comic already, you have the general idea. "Deadly Class is authentic, honest, and brutal- the threats are real". Jeff Buhler (Jacob's Ladder) wrote the adaptation for television and will executive produce alongside Daniel Cerone (The Blacklist), who will also serve as showrunner. "Our producing partners expertly combined high school angst, "80s nostalgia and comic flair into a beautifully realized, visually arresting pilot that truly brings Rick and Wes" acclaimed comic series to life". It follows a homeless teenager who is recruited into an elite private school run by the world's criminal elite with strict ethical and moral codes and a social environment that could literally leave any one of the students dead.

Syfy has unveiled teasers for its new series, George R.R. Martin's Nightflyers andDeadly Class.

Benedict Wong (Doctor Strange), Benjamin Wadsworth (Teen Wolf), Lana Condor (X-Men: Apocalypse), Maria Gabriela de Faria (Sitiados), Luke Tennie (Shock and Awe), Liam James (The Killing) and Michel Duval (Queen of the South) star.
