Marvel’s ‘Inhumans’ Sets ‘Iron Fist’ Boss as Showrunner

Marvel Entertainment is turning to a familiar hand to guide its forthcoming ABC series “The Inhumans.” Scott Buck, who is already executive producer and showrunner for Netflix’s upcoming Marvel series “Iron Fist,” will serve in the same role on “The Inhumans.”

ABC announced last month that it had given a greenlight to “The Inhumans” under a unique distribution and financing deal that will see the first two episodes premiere in IMAX theaters. Those episodes are slated to later air on ABC, with subsequent episodes premiering on the broadcast network.

“The Inhumans” will premiere in theaters in September, 2017, then air on ABC that fall. The series, based on characters created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby for Marvel Comics in 1965, tells the story of a race of superpowered beings. It is produced by Marvel and ABC Studios, and will be ABC’s third Marvel series, following “Agents of SHIELD” and “Agent Carter.”

“Iron Fist,” the fourth Marvel series for Netflix following “Daredevil,” “Jessica Jones,” and “Luke Cage,” will premiere on Netflix March 17, 2017. It will star Finn Jones as Danny Rand, a kung-fu master able to summon the power of the mythical Iron Fist.

Prior to “Iron Fist,” Buck worked as executive producer on Showtime’s “Dexter.” His other series credits include “Six Feet Under” and “Rome.”
