TV show description:
Based on the Image Comics graphic novel by writer Rick Remender and illustrator Wes Craig, the Deadly Class TV show is a dark, coming-of-age action thriller, developed for television by Remender and Miles Orion Feldsott. Within a late 1980s counterculture setting, the story follows Marcus Lopez Arguello (Wadsworth), a street kid who is recruited into Kings Dominion, a private academy. The twist is, this elite school is the top choice among the world’s premier crime families.
Mercurial and fierce, Master Lin (Wong) is headmaster of the Academy for the Deadly Arts. The students drive themselves crazy trying to win his approval, but his expectations seem unmeetable.
The enigmatic Saya Kuroki (Condor) has her sights set on being the Kings Dominion valedictorian. Dark, driven, and discreet, Saya plans to take no prisoners on her trip to the top.
Wildly unpredictable, Maria Salazar (de Faría) vacillates from being an outgoing show-off, to a lethal weapon, to a young woman paralyzed by her anger. Unlike more mundane schools, at the Academy for the Deadly Arts, her volatility is something to be envied.
Something of an outcast at Kings Dominion, skater punk Billy (James) is the son of a crooked cop. Meanwhile, despite being the son of an L.A. gang leader, Willie (Tennie) is a truthful, considerate guy.
As he settles into life at school, it is not long before Marcus realizes he must maintain his personal code, despite the vicious curriculum, his treacherous classmates, and all the usual difficulty involved in growing up.
Episode #10 — Sink With California
The heroes raid Chester manor; across town, Lin runs from El Diablo with his daughter.
First aired: March 20, 2019.
