“BOONDOCK SAINTS: ORIGINS The TV series will be a rebooted origin story starting in present day.

Our story centers around Connor and Murphy MacManus, two fraternal twin brothers In their mid twenties who are living as illegal immigrants in Boston. Originally from Ireland, their idealized concept of life in America is confronted as they witness injustice and unfairness in the U.S. As the boys deepen their ties to their new community, they begin to protect it and we watch them rise into shadowy vigilantes that the press eventually dubs, “The Saints.” More to come… t.duff #boondocksaints #bdsOrigins“
