Pretty safe bet that it's gonna be good

Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the writers of bonkers 'Deadpool' movie series, have been announced as the executive producers of a new YouTube Red series called 'Wayne'.

Deadline describes the show as "a gritty and sometimes bloody tale in which 15-year-old Wayne (McKenna) sets out on a dirt bike with his new crush Del (Bravo) to take back the 1978 Pontiac Trans Am that was stolen from his father before he died. It is Wayne and Del against the world." So it seems that they're leaning more into Deadpool's action elements than its comedy.
