Meet THE SPECIALS! They’re the sixth (okay, maybe the seventh) greatest superhero team in the entire world. At their modest suburban headquarters, The Strobe (SIDEWAYS’ Thomas Haden Church), The Weevil (PARKS AND RECREATION’s Rob Lowe), foul-mouthed Amok (SCREAM 1 & 2’s Jamie Kennedy), Ms. Indestructible (CRIMINAL MINDS’ Paget Brewster, Deadly Girl (HALLOWEEN 2018’s Judy Greer), new member Nightbird (CABIN FEVER’s Jordan Ladd) and the rest all spend their time bickering, having extramarital affairs, and preparing for the grand unveiling of their own action figure line. But when a furious Strobe suddenly disbands the group, who will be there for the oddballs, rebels, outcasts and geeks? Before they save the world, can they save themselves?
Kelly Coffield (IN LIVING COLOR), Michael Weatherly (DARK ANGEL), Chase Masterson (DEEP SPACE NINE) and Melissa Joan Hart (SABRINA) co-star in this hilarious cult hit from director Craig Mazin (creator of HBO’s CHERNOBYL) and screenwriter James Gunn (Writer/Director of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY I & II).
