Freeform picks up Marvel’s ‘Cloak and Dagger’
It’s no secret that Marvel has been putting out quality product in our mainstream media these days, which is why we find it even less surprising that Freeform (previously ABC Family) has picked up the the crime fighting super couple ‘Cloak and Dagger’.
Cloak and Dagger will follow the lives of Tandy Bowen (Dagger), an upper class teenage girl running from a neglectful family and Tyrone Johnson (Cloak) another runaway from Boston, who inevitably run into each other in New York City and become fast friends, then lovers. As these two wander together they eventually find themselves involved with the wrong kind of people on the street. They are eventually kidnapped and experimented on with a new strain of drug which forces their powers to manifest. Tyrone with the ability to engulf anything in complete darkness, and Tandy with the ability to crate daggers from light. Together they name themselves Cloak and Dagger to fight the same people who turned them into superhumans.
Currently, there is no writer attached to the series but we expect the search to be finished soon and production swiftly underway. With Freeform being the channel of choice this time, we know that the target audience is going to be geared towards the 14-34 age range. This will also mark Freeform’s first Marvel property following in the footsteps of its counterpart ABC airing ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ and soon to come ‘Marvel’s Most Wanted’
With the superhero genre still being new to Freeform, this show will pair itself nicely to the current running fantasy genre ‘Shadowhunters’, broadening the network’s reach to viewers.http://radiopressgaming.com/2016/04/freeform-picks-marvels-cloak-and-dagger/http://radiopressgaming.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/cloak-and-dagger.jpghttp://radiopressgaming.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/cloak-and-dagger-150x150.jpgComicsEntertainmentTVCloak,Cloak and Dagger,Dagger,Freeform,MarvelIt's no secret that Marvel has been putting out quality product in our mainstream media these days, which is why we find it even less surprising that Freeform (previously ABC Family) has picked up the the crime fighting super couple 'Cloak and Dagger'.
