SILK TV Series Adds WATCHMEN Producer As Showrunner As Work On The SPIDER-MAN Spinoff Continues

The Silk TV series recently took a big step forward with the addition of a showrunner who has some serious small screen credentials, including HBO's Watchmen. Find more details after the jump...

Deadline confirms that Tom Spezialy, who recently served as an executive producer on HBO's Emmy-winning Watchmen, has signed an overall deal with Amazon Studios. This wouldn't normally be big news here, but the trade adds that he's joined the live-action Silk series as showrunner. 

He'll fill that role alongside executive producer Lauren Moon (Atypical), the writer of Sony's first small screen Marvel Comics adaptation. As part of Sony Pictures' Universe of Marvel Characters, this series is being overseen by Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse scribes Phil Lord and Chris Miller (who signed a deal to take charge of a "suite" of Spider-Man spinoffs for television).

Silk is also being executive produced by Spider-Man franchise producer Amy Pascal.

The title character of this series first appeared in 2014's Amazing Spider-Man #1. Created by Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos, Cindy Moon has many similar characteristics to Peter Parker after being bitten by the same radioactive spider that granted him his spectacular superpowers. 

Few details have been revealed about Silk, but we have previously heard that Sony is looking for a Korean-American actress between the ages of 19 and 29 to play this member of the Spider Family.

Silk is a character with plenty of potential on screen, though we're betting Spider-Man won't be part of her origin story. That's become the norm with the spinoff movies, though it would be pretty cool if Sony were to find a way to shed some light on how Peter gained his powers in the MCU.
