Last week we told you about the DC Universe launch announcement and its first exclusive show, Swamp Thing. This week, we've got more good news.

Today, the upcoming DC Universe digital service announced its next original series, the one-hour live-action drama Doom Patrol, from executive producers Greg Berlanti, Geoff Johns, Jeremy Carver and Sarah Schechter.

Based on DC characters originally written and drawn by Arnold Drake, Bob Haney and Bruno Premiani, Doom Patrol is a re-imagining of one of DC’s most beloved group of outcast Super Heroes: Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Girl and Crazy Jane, led by modern-day mad scientist Dr. Niles Caulder (The Chief). Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of super-powered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them.
