The growing world of Power Rangers TV from Hasbro and eOne has revealed who will be at the wheel, as Limit It revealed that Jenny Klein (The Thing About Pam) has signed a two-year comprehensive TV content deal with Entertainment One, and will be a runner in eOne’s Power Rangers series being developed at Netflix. Teaming up with Jonathan Entwistle to oversee the Power Rangers universe, Entwistle signed a deal with eOne in 2020 to develop a television and film franchise, and he couldn’t be more excited for Klein to join the Power Rangers team.
“Building this partnership with Jenny, whose talent and passion transcend genres, is an exciting moment for us. We believe her distinctive vision makes her a perfect fit for helping us develop Hasbro’s deep intellectual property library, as well as original projects,” said Gaby Marano, Executive Vice President, Scripted Television, US, eOne, it’s a pleasure to have you on board.

Klein said: “eOne is an impressively versatile home for original content development, and with a great toy box to search, it’s a very exciting place.
Klein co-created The Thing About Pam and was the show director and executive producer on the project, which became NBC’s Best New Series last year. She’s also worked on Daisy Jones, The Six, The Witcher, Sacred Lies, Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger, Jessica Jones, and Supernatural, so she has a number of fan-loved shows and franchises already in her back catalog.
Entwistle shared the news on Twitter, adding the caption, “So f***ing happy to have the amazing
jennydelherpes in the new rangers series – you must all be super excited!! “
Details are still largely lacking regarding the new series and even the franchise’s broader eOne movie plans, despite rumors and previous reports that have hinted at the film involving time travel to incorporate some of the ’90s vibe and feel to the original Mighty Morphin Power Peril. This also appears to be a separate series from the upcoming 30th Anniversary series of the major TV series, which will likely be via Netflix just like Dino Fury.
Hopefully there will be more focus on the franchise’s movie and TV plans soon, but at least we know who’s driving the ship.
