Marvel, Hulu Overhaul Creative Team for Animated Series ‘Tigra & Dazzler’

Marvel has decided to make a major overhaul on the Tigra & Dazzler Show, one of the four adult-themed animated comedies the studio has at Hulu.

Tigra & Dazzler Show showrunner Erica Rivinoja and the comedy series’ entire writing staff have been let go from the series following creative differences with Marvel. According to The Hollywood Reporter, sources say that Rivinoja and her team had already completed multiple scripts and outlines for others and were 15 weeks into a planned 20-week production cycle.

Production on the show has been paused as Marvel plans to hire a new showrunner and have them build their own writing team as part of a larger creative overhaul. All of the work Rivinoja and her staff had completed is being thrown out. 

Tigra & Dazzler Show follows two woke superheroes and best friends, Tigra and Dazzler, as they fight for recognition among powered people living in L.A.

Picked up in February, Tigra & Dazzler was expected to be the third comedy out of the gate for the Hulu/Marvel partnership. Production on the first two series, M.O.D.O.K. and Hit-Monkey, remains on track, as does the fourth, Howard the Duck. While all four shows are expected to come together in a special — titled The Offenders in a nod to Marvel’s Netflix miniseries mash-up The Defenders — none of them are dependent on one another and they will not crossover until the one-off.
