The first big original series from Amazon this year will be The Boys, based off the comic book of the same name and produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.

Focused on a group of vigilantes trying to keep fame-hungry superheroes "who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians, and as revered as Gods" in check, this looks and feels like a fresh take on the genre that's usually too family friendly to show a little blood. Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Chace Crawford, Laz Alonso, Tomer Kapon, and Karen Fukuhara star.
