While NBC’s ‘Powerless‘ failed and Marvel’s ‘Damage Control‘ not see the light of day, The CW still believes the idea of a story following the people who have to clean up after superheroes is one worth telling and is set to bring us ‘Super Clean.’ The project is being developed by Sascha Rothchild (‘GLOW’) who is writing the adaptation and is based upon the upcoming graphic novel by Heath Amodio and Cullen Bunn with art handled by Jason “J” Wright. Rothchild and Amodio are set to executive produce the series with John Baldecchi and Doug Barry while Bunn will be producing.
‘Super Clean’ will be another human take on the superhero genre as we follow Becky Masters who works with a group of other non-powered humans who try and deal with “cleaning up” after superheroes and villains. With explosives, damaged buildings, and possibly supernatural items to deal with it will likely prove that cleaning up after these fights can be just as intense as the confrontations themselves. Oh, and the brilliant Masters also has a superhuman boyfriend which she needs to prove innocent from the crime he is being accused of.
Rothchild has a history with The CW and previously was a writer and producer for the second season of ‘The Carrie Diaries.’ No word as to who will be directing the series at this time or if the network has any stars in mind for the significant roles.
