First look at Peter Serafinowicz as The Tick

Jul 21, 2016

Amazon has revealed the first look of The Tick which stars Peter Serafinowicz as the title character. The Tick will debut August 19th and will be part of Amazon’s upcoming comedy Pilot Season. The series will debut along side “I Love Dick”, which stars Kevin Bacon, and “Jean-Claude Van Johnson, starring Jean-Claude Van Damme.

Official synopsis via Amazon:

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 stars Peter Serafinowicz (Guardians of the Galaxy), Griffin Newman (Vinyl), Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen), Valorie Curry (House of Lies), Yara Martinez (Jane the Virgin) and Brendan Hines (Scorpion). The Tick is executive produced by Ben Edlund (Supernatural), Barry Josephson (Bones) and Barry Sonnenfeld (A Series of Unfortunate Events), directed by Wally Pfister (The Dark Knight), and written by Edlund. The Tick is a co-production with Sony Pictures Television.

Personally, I would have loved to see Patrick Warburton reprise his role as the title character but I think Serafinowicz is a good choice as well. I’m still not quite sold on the costume yet but it’s The Tick, not an Avengers film.
