David Harbour Set to Lead ‘Creature Commandos’ for 10 Years
David Harbour, “Stranger Things” star, is set to lead “Creature Commandos” for the next 10 years. The Hollywood Reporter confirmed the news on Wednesday that Harbour had closed a 10-year overall deal with Warner Bros. Television, which marks the first overall studio deal for the actor.
The project was written by Academy Award-winner Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald , based off a DC Comics series from the 1960s. The concept was described as being set in a “top-secret, monster-filled military unit during World War II.” Steven Speilberg’s Amblin Television will co-produce the show and Harbour will serve as a creative member of the production.
The DC Comics series, first launched in 1962, included a comic book along with a toy line with action figures. The series includes Sgt. Frank Rock, Dr. Canus and a werewolf, vampire, and a mermaid. The team fought crime and unearthly monsters for the United States military. The original series was created by Robert Kanigher and Joe Gill.
Harbour followed up the news with his enthusiasm on Twitter, writing “CREATURE COMMANDOS!!!!! this is gonna be so rad and in like ten years you can say you knew it could happen from the start.”
Harbour is currently starring in Apple TV+ drama “Ted Lasso.” He won an Emmy nod for his third season performance as Jim Hopper in “Stranger Things.” He is also set to star in “The Lovebirds,” for CBS All Access, and in Netflix’s “Culture Clash.”
Harbour is repped by WME, Authentic Talent & Literary Management and Jackoway Austen Tyerman.
