Disney to produce The Mysterious Benedict Society

Disney is turning the award-winning and bestselling book series The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart into a Disney+ series. The series was originally supposed to debut on Hulu.

Disney describes the series as “Placed undercover at a boarding school known as The Institute, a group of orphans must foil a nefarious plot with global ramifications while creating a new sort of family along the way. “

The show stars Emmy Award winner Tony Hale (“Veep,” “Arrested Development”) and Kristen Schaal (“Bob’s Burgers,” “Last Man On Earth”), Ryan Hurst, MaameYaa Boafo, Gia Sandhu, Seth Carr, Emmy DeOliveira, Mystic Inscho and Marta Timofeeva.

“‘The Mysterious Benedict Society’ is a beautifully executed adaptation of the celebrated and beloved book series. It’s original, clever and fun for the whole family, which makes it the perfect fit for Disney+,” said Dana Walden, chairman of Entertainment, Walt Disney Television. “One of the great benefits to creators working with our company is that we have a platform that’s right for every series, and having seen the first few episodes of this show, there is no better home for it than Disney+.”

The Mysterious Benedict Society will air in 2021.
