Netflix Hires Dexter Showrunner To Oversee Marvel’s Iron Fist

The fourth series from the Marvel Netflix team, the martial arts-themed Iron Fist, has found its showrunner in the form of Scott Buck, best known for his work on Six Feet Under, Rome and Dexter, which he oversaw for the last four seasons.


“Scott came in with a take on Iron Fist that quite simply knocked us off our feet,” says Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb, bringing to mind visions of Buck sending them spinning with a roundhouse kick. “We always look for the most creative minds in the field to help us bring our heroes to life, and with Scott we’ve found someone that can deliver yet another great series in the ongoing story of The Defenders.”

“I’ve always been drawn to writing complex, intriguing characters,” says Scott Buck, “and that’s what most excites me about the opportunity to bring Danny Rand and Iron Fist to life with Marvel on Netflix.”

In the series Daniel Rand returns to New York City after going missing for years. There, he uses his his incredible kung-fu skills and his ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist to battle criminal elements corrupting the city.
