The series will also star Jackie Earl Haley (Watchmen), Yara Martinez (Jane the Virgin), Griffin Newman (Vinyl), and Valorie Curry (House of Lies).

The pilot was co-produced by Sony Pictures Television, and the official synopsis via Amazon reads: “In a world where superheroes have been real for decades, an underdog accountant with zero powers comes to realize his city is owned by a global super villain long-thought dead. As he struggles to uncover this conspiracy, he falls in league with a strange blue superhero.”

The Tick originated as a comic book in the late ’80s before becoming an animated series in 1994.  It later became a live-action show starring Patrick Warburton (Family Guy) as the Tick.
