From comics to live action TV Series

 

Based on the comic book series created and written by Gerard Way, illustrated by Gabriel Bá, and published by Dark Horse Comics, the story of The Umbrella Academy starts in 1989, when 43 infants are inexplicably born to random, unconnected women who showed no signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by a billionaire who creates The Umbrella Academy and prepares his “children” to save the world. Now, the six surviving members with conflicting personalities reunite upon the news of their father’s passing and must work together to solve a mystery surrounding his death, not to mention the imminent threat of a global apocalypse.

 

The show is produced by Universal Cable Productions for Netflix, with Steve Blackman serving as executive producer and showrunner, and additional EPs Jeff F. King, Mike Richardson, Keith Goldberg, Gerard Way, and Gabriel Bá.
