“Doom Patrol” is a re-imagining of DC’s most beloved group of outcast superheroes: Robotman (Brendan Fraser) Negative Man (Matthew Bomer), Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby), and Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero), led by modern-day mad scientist Dr. Niles Caulder (Timothy Dalton). The Doom Patrol's members each suffered horrible accidents that gave them superhuman abilities — but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found their purpose through The Chief, coming together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence.
From executive producers Greg Berlanti, Geoff Johns, Jeremy Carver, Sarah Schechter and Chris Dingess, “Doom Patrol” tells the story of a band of superpowered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them.
