Lizze Broadway to Star on 'The Boys' Superhero College Spinoff in the Works at Amazon

Craig Rosenberg is writing the project, which will be produced by “The Boys” showrunner Eric Kripke

Lizze Broadway has joined the cast of “The Boys” spinoff series, which is set at America’s only college exclusively for young adult superheroes, TheWrap has learned.

The untitled project, which has been in development at Amazon since September, will feature an ensemble cast, with Broadway in the role of a young superhero named Emma.

Set at America’s only college exclusively for young adult superheroes (and run by Vought International), the untitled spinoff is described as “an irreverent, R-rated series that explores the lives of hormonal, competitive Supes as they put their physical, sexual, and moral boundaries to the test, competing for the best contracts in the best cities. Part college show, part ‘Hunger Games’ — with all the heart, satire and raunch of ‘The Boys.’”

Craig Rosenberg is writing the potential show and will serve as executive producer and showrunner, should it be ordered to series by Amazon. Additional executive producers include Eric Kripke, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg — who developed “The Boys” for Amazon, with Kripke serving as showrunner — as well as James Weaver, Neal H. Moritz, Pavun Shetty. Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, who wrote and illustrated “The Boys” comics will also executive produce the spinoff. Co-executive producers include Sarah Carbiener, Erica Rosbe, Aisha Porter-Christie, Judalina Neira and Zak Schwartz.

The series will be produced by “The Boys” studio Sony Pictures Television Studios and Amazon Studios, in association with Point Grey Pictures, Kripke Enterprises and Original Film.

Broadway’s television credits include “The Rookie,” “Bones,” “Splitting Up Together,” “Here and Now” and “Southland.”

She is repped by Dan Spilo and Tim Emery at Industry Entertainment, Coast to Coast, and attorney Derek Kroeger.
