The ten-episode half-hour series follows six young people with minor super powers living and working together as they enter adulthood.

The cast includes Milana Vayntrub as Squirrel Girl, Derek Theler as Mister Immortal, Jeremy Tardy as Night Thrasher, Calum Worthy as Speedball, Matthew Moy as Microbe and Kate Comer as Debrii.
Kevin Biegel (“Cougar Town,” “Enlisted”) will serve as showrunner and executive producer with Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory executive producing for Marvel Television and ABC Signature Studios. A 2018 premiere is planned.
