HBO Max Picks Up Drama 'Dead Boy Detectives' to Series

HBO Max has today given a series order to the original drama series Dead Boy Detectives based on the DC Comics characters. The first season will produce 8 episodes.

The drama is a ghost story that explores loss, grief and death through the lens of Edwin Payne and Charles Rowland, two dead British teenagers, and their very alive friend, Crystal Palace. So, it's a lot like a vintage detective series - only darker and on acid.

The drama will star George Rexstrew, Jayden Revri, Kassius Nelson, Briana Cuoco, Ruth Connell, Yuyu Kitamura and Jenn Lyon.

Steve Yockey wrote the pilot, which was directed by Lee Toland Krieger. They will executive produce with Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, David Madden and Jeremy Carver. Warner Bros. Television and Berlanti Productions will produce.
