The Disasters is a sci-fi novel written by M. K. England on December 18, 2018. The story is a coming-of-age book about a diverse group of individuals, and it’s also a tale of found family, courage, and a young man’s insecurities.
Netflix is skimming to release a series adaptation of this sci-fi novel. The story is billed as “The Breakfast Club meets Guardians of the Galaxy.” Lee Toland Krieger, Greg Berlanti, David Madden, Sarah Schecter, John Sacchi, and Derek Simon serve as executive producers. The production is done by Warner Brothers Television, and the project is being done by Matt Groesch.
When the news of its arrival came, it was revealed that The CW would be bearing the show from Berlanti Productions back in December 2020. After that, there was complete silence on the project. Now the rumors of the series movie from The CW to Netflix are ringing, and if they are authentic, it would be the first significant movie from The CW to Netflix.
There was a similar situation when The Girls on the Bus moved from Netflix to The CW last year. Netflix notably had an extensive partnership with the web throughout much of the 2010s, with a comprehensive deal carrying dozens of shows to Netflix in the US. 10 shows in The CW’s lineup always come to Netflix in the US yearly.
The Disasters features Nax, an Ellis Station Academy washout. United by a ragtag group of other teen failures, the group must eliminate the Earth First movement from brushing out Earth’s colonies—all while being chased across the galaxy as culprits for the mass murder of a space station. Nax and his unexpected crew are innocent, but they’re the only bystanders to Earth First’s monstrosities and the only ones who can prevent the subsequent genocide.
The Disasters’ commitment to variety—through multiple ethnicities, cultures, genders, and sexualities, is an intense selling pinpoint and regulated intuitively. With such strong points in the plot, we can expect a great series in return. For further updates, stay tuned.
