Marvel is creating a series based on the characters Cloak and Dagger for Freeeform. Variety is reporting that the network has given the series a straight to series order. No actors or behind-the-scenes talent has been announced for the series.
The series is described as a live-action interracial romance that follows the duo, two teenagers from very different backgrounds, who find themselves burdened and awakened to newly acquired superpowers while falling in love — Tandy can emit light daggers and Tyrone has the ability to engulf others in darkness. They quickly learn they are better together than apart, but their feelings for each other make their already complicated world even more challenging.
This marks the first Marvel series on Freeform following Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter on ABC as well as the Marvel/Netflix series.
