Orange is the New Black star, Diane Guerrero is set to play Crazy Jane, a lead character in DC Universe’s live-action Doom Patrol series from Greg Berlanti and Warner Bros. TV.
Crazy Jane is an unlikely hero, suffering from an extreme case of multiple personality disorder, where each of her 64 different personas manifest with an entirely different superpower, leaving Jane as the Doom Patrol’s most powerful (and unstable) member.
Jeremy Carver is adapting Doom Patrol for the screen. The story follows Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby), Robotman, Negative Man, and Crazy Jane (Guerrero), led by modern mad-scientist Niles Caulder. Each of the Doom Patrol’s members suffer horrible accidents that leave them with their superhuman abilities – as well as disfiguring scars. Traumatised and demoralised, Caulder gives them purpose, investigating strange and unusual phenomena and protecting the Earth from what they discover.
Picking up after the events of Titans, Doom Patrol will see these reluctant heroes called to action by Cyborg, who comes to them with a mission that’s impossible to refuse. However, it comes with a warning: should they do this, their lives will never be the same.
Doom Patrol received a 13-episode straight-to-series order in May, and is set to begin production this year for a 2019 premiere on DC Universe.
