Series Description 

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 purpose through The Chief, who brought them together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence and to protect Earth from what they find. Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of super-powered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them. Picking up after the events of fellow DC Universe series “Titans,” “Doom Patrol” will find these reluctant heroes in a place they never expected to be, called to action by none other than Cyborg, who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse, but with a warning that is hard to ignore: their lives will never, ever be the same.

Doom Patrol was created by Arnold Drake (Writer), Bob Haney (Writer), Bruno Premiani (Artist) and first appeared in My Greatest Adventure #20 (June 1963)

It also appears that it’ll be part of the line up when the service premieres in 2019. Other shows premiering on the service are; the two other live action series Titans and Swamp Thing , then the two animated series Harley Quinn and Young Justice: Outsiders. With a live action Metropolis series being redeveloped for a later time.
