FXX is making an animated Deadpool series. The brothers Donald and Stephen Glover (Atlanta) will create the show, which will be for adults.
FXX has greenlit 10 episodes to debut in 2018. No pilot was made — a rarity for tv animation — and the idea is going straight to series. Reportedly, FX and Disney-owned Marvel pitched the idea to the Glovers.
The Glover brothers will executive produce and write the series as well as serve as showrunners. Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory are also executive producers. The series is being produced by Marvel Television, in association with 21st Century Fox’s FX Productions and Disney’s cable arm ABC Signature Studios.
