The series is a co-production of Marvel Studios and ABC Signature Studios.

Cloak and Dagger first appeared in Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man #64 (March 1982). After a number of additional Spider-Man guest appearances, they were given their own four-issue limited series, written by creator Bill Mantlo, penciled by Rick Leonardi, and inked by Terry Austin. It debuted in October 1983 and was a success, prompting Marvel Comics to launch an ongoing bi-monthly Cloak and Dagger series in 1985, with the same creative team. Costumed supervillains rarely appeared in the series, which focused on Cloak and Dagger's quest to end the drug trade completely and frequently explored the issue of vigilantism.*

"Marvel's Cloak and Dagger" will be the first live-action comic book series for one of Disney's cable networks. Marvel was acquired by Disney in 2009.
