Hanks To Voice “Electric City” Web Series

Tom Hanks’ Playtone and Reliance Entertainment are teaming to produce the animated online science-fiction series “Electric City” says The Hollywood Reporter.

The series initially will stream exclusively on Yahoo – the Internet portal’s first foray into narrative storytelling. Twenty episodes, each one roughly four minutes long, will kick off in the spring.

Hanks will voice the lead character in the web series which, if it proves popular, could end up branching out into disc releases, television and even a possible theatrical release.
