    Jupiter's Legacy, which will span eight episodes, hails from Steven S. DeKnight (who launched Netflix's first Marvel drama, Daredevil) will serve as showrunner. Lorenzo diBonaventura and Dan McDermott exec produce, with DeKnight directing the first episode.

    The drama is based on Millar's ongoing comic of the same name, which was first published in 2013. The series is a multigenerational drama that follows the world's first generation of superheroes, who received their powers in the 1930s. In the present day, they're they revered elder guard, but their super-powered children struggle to live up to the legendary feats of their parents. Jupiter's Legacy is considered the crown jewel of Millar's Millarworld banner as the title, about the world's first superheroes, could lend itself to become its own suite of series akin to Netflix's Marvel TV universe.

    Exclusive: Mark Millar's Netflix Series 'Jupiter's Legacy' Sets Core Cast
    Mark Millar‘s multi-generational superhero epic Jupiter’s Legacy is one of the biggest series in development at Netflix, and we’re starting to get word regarding the cast. Multiple sources tell Collider that Josh Duhamel and Leslie Bibb will play the two married leads, with Andrew Horton and Elena Kampouris playing their children, and Ben Daniels and Matt Lanter playing Duhamel’s brother and best friend, respectively.

    Duhamel will play Sheldon Sampson, aka The Utopian. He’s an amazingly powerful superhero who’s also the longtime leader of the Union of Justice. Bibb will play his wife, Grace Sampson, aka Lady Liberty. She’s a powerful goddess who fights evil alongside her husband, but is concerned about the growing rift between him and their two children. Kampouris will play Chloe, their super-powered daughter who is also a hard-partying professional model, while Horton will play Brandon Sampson, aka Paragon, a budding young superhero who idolizes his father but struggles to live up to his greatness.

    Meanwhile, Daniels will play Walter Sampson, aka Brainwave, a loner who can create psychic illusions that serve him well in combat. He’s a doting uncle to Chloe and Brandon, but he has a strained relationship with his headstrong brother. Finally, Lanter will play George Hutchence, aka Skyfox, who is Sheldon’s best friend and a fellow founding member of the Union of Justice.
