“Captain Marvel” and “Half Nelson” writer-directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck are set to direct the first four episodes of “Criminal” for Amazon’s Prime Video service.

The series is based on the multi-Eisner Award-winning graphic novels by writer Ed Brubaker and illustrator Sean Phillips.

The show is said to be “an interlocking universe of crime stories” and “tells the interweaving saga of several generations of families tied together by the crimes and murders of the past.”

Edgar Award-winning crime fiction author Jordan Harper will co-showrun the series alongside Brubaker with the latter penning the pilot script.

Brubaker is one of the most celebrated comic writers ever with multiple Eisner and Harvey Awards for Best Writer. Harper has served as a consulting producer on a number of series including “Hightown,” “The Mentalist” and “Gotham”.

Brubaker and Harper executive produce alongside Phillips, Sarah Carbiener and Phillip Barnett. The series is currently in pre-production in Portland.
