A GI Joe spin-off series following Lady Jaye is in the works at Amazon Studios.
The undercover operative is a mainstay of the GI Joe universe, appearing in the animated series in 1984 and written into the comics. Now, Hasbro’s live-action screen universe is expanding to include her as well.
She was portrayed by Adrianne Palicki in the 2013 feature film GI Joe: Retaliation, but the series will be a solo outing for the character. It will be standalone series centred on Jaye, while also connecting to the wider GI Joe universe.
The series is produced by Paramount Television Studios, eOne and Skydance Television, with Lorenzo DiBonaventura on board as exec-producer. Also exec-producing and serving as showrunner will be Erik Oleson. Oleson is no stranger to Amazon Studios, having created Amazon’s original series Carnival Row and written on The Man in the High Castle. The project will form part of Oleson’s overall deal in place at Amazon Studios.
