Amazon has greenlit an adaptation of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson's series The Boys, which follows a team tasked with keeping superheroes in line by any means necessary. Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen will direct the first episode alongside Executive Producer credits. The hour-long drama will be written by Supernatural's Eric Kripke.

"In a landscape saturated with superhero shows, The Boys is the next evolution in this popular genre," said Sharon Tal Yguado. "With Eric, Evan, Seth and Original Film all behind this series, we are excited to adapt this popular comic, from the visionary minds of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, for television."

The Boys comic ran for 72 issues from 2008-12, published initially by Wildstorm (#1-6) and then by Dynamite Entertainment. The series is known for its hyper-violence and graphic depiction of superhero hedonism.
