Russo Brother to Produce Valiant's Quantum and Woody TV Series
Mar 17, 2017
Valiant Entertainment's Quantum & Woody head to television shepherded by some of comics' greatest talent: the Russo Brothers, who were responsible for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Civil War, and the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War. Along with the Russo Brothers, Mike Larocca and Valiant's Dinesh Shamdasani will be executive producers on the series, along with Ant-Man screenwriters Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari.
Quantum & Woody launched in 1997, created by Christopher Priest (Black Panther) and M. D. Bright (Power Man and Iron Fist), as a fun comedic superhero title. Following two estranged interracial brothers, the series picks up with the mysterious death of their father--when they're forced to work together to investigate, they're accidentally imbibed with powers, starting them off on their journey as "the world's worst superhero team."
Valiant's film and television slate continues to grow with Quantum & Woody now in play, which joins Harbinger and Bloodshot in development at Sony Pictures, along with feature films for Archer & Armstrong and Shadowman. Quantum & Woody relaunched in 2013 with James Asmus and Tom Fowler and was the most nominated series at the 2014 Harvey Awards.
