Doom Patrol will premiere February 15 exclusively on the DC Universe service, and they have made descriptions available for the first two episodes!
Hopefully we’ll have some photos soon.
Here are those descriptions:
Episode 1: “Pilot”
In the series premiere episode, the team – tired of being stuck in Doom Manor – decides to visit the local town while The Chief is away. However, this seemingly harmless field trip leads to some grave consequences, including an encounter with the mysterious and powerful Mr. Nobody (series star ALAN TUDYK).
Episode 2: “Donkey Patrol”
Following Mr. Nobody’s capture of Niles Caulder and the destruction of Cloverton Ohio, The Doom Patrol investigate the mysterious albino donkey and discover it is a door to another universe, one where Mr. Nobody is in control. Cyborg aka Vic Stone (series star JOIVAN WADE), a part man/part machine hero from Detroit who has his own complicated relationship with Niles Caulder, joins the search.
Via “UberKryptonian” on Twitter, some photos have surfaced online from the Atlanta filming location of Doom Patrol, revealing our first looks at several characters!
These photos include Riley Shanahan as the man inside of Robotman, Diane Guerrero as Crazy Jane, April Bowlby as Elasti-Girl, and Dwain Murphy as Negative Man.
Atlanta has been home to several superhero and TV movie productions, so it’s almost not surprising that these actors were caught outside. Though… hopefully we’ll at least get red and white costumes for some of these folks eventually?
Doom Patrol is coming in 2019 to the DC Universe streaming service. Follow @DoomPatrolTV on Twitter for more updates as they become available!
Diane Guerrero as Crazy Jane - Doom Patrol
Diane Guerrero of Orange is the New Black and Superior Donuts fame has landed the series regular role of Crazy Jane in the upcoming live-action Doom Patrol series for DC Universe.
Here’s how they officially describe the series:
Doom Patrol is a reimagining of one of DC’s strangest group of outcasts: Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Woman and Crazy Jane. Led by the mysterious Dr. Niles Caulder they’re called into action by the ultimate hero for the digital age, Cyborg. Banding together these rejects find themselves on a mission that will take them to the weirdest and most unexpected corners of the DC universe.
Guerrero’s other credits include many episodes of Jane the Virgin. In addition to acting, Guerrero has written several books, including the recently released My Family Divided, and she is a sought-after activist and speaker, particularly in the areas of immigration.
Warner Bros. has released a description for the character which you can find below.
Crazy Jane is an unlikely hero suffering from the world’s most severe case of multiple personality disorder. Each of her 64 distinct personas manifest a different super power making Jane the Doom Patrol’s most powerful member…and also its most unstable.

Doom Patrol is a spin-off of Titans that is also coming to the DC Universe streaming service, and we’ll be covering DP news here at TitansTV in the future as it comes closer.
Today, That Hashtag Show has details about the role of “Crazy Jane” which is being cast for the Doom Patrol series. The character first saw her introduction in the comics in Grant Morrison’s run as writer of the title.
In any event, they got a hold of a casting breakdown, and this is what Doom Patrol is looking for to play Kay Challis a.k.a. Crazy Jane:
Created by Grant Morrison and Richard Case, Crazy Jane first appeared in the DC Comics world in February 1989. Debuting in #19 of Doom Patrol Volume 2, Crazy Jane has been a famous member of the group ever since. She suffers from multiple personality disorder which was caused by the Dominator gene bomb which she was exposed to in the famous Invasion! storyline. Because of that event, all of her 64 personalities have their individual super ability.
Doom Patrol is headed to the DC Universe streaming service in 2019. You can get Doom Patrol updates @DoomPatrolTV on Twitter!
