Luffy, the leader of a pirate crew who has the powers to turn his body into rubber after eating a “Devil Fruit,” and who ventures around a fantastical world of exotic islands and vast oceans in search of the legendary treasure known as “One Piece” to become the next Pirate King.

Steven Maeda (The X-Files, Lost) will be penning the script, who will also act as the showrunner and executive producer, with Matt Owens (Luke Cage, Agents of SHIELD) will co-write and executive producer as well. 
One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda will join Maeda and Owens as an executive producer to oversee the series.
