IMAX Corp., Marvel Television and Disney’s ABC Television Group have announced an innovative agreement regarding Marvel’s “The Inhumans” property which will be turned into a live-action television series.
In the comics, The Inhumans are a race of superhumans with diverse and singularly unique powers. The series will explore the never-before-told epic adventure of Black Bolt and the royal family.
What makes this series so special is that under the agreement, a version of the first two episodes “The Inhumans” series – produced in conjunction with ABC Studios and filmed entirely with IMAX digital cameras – will run worldwide exclusively in IMAX for two weeks at the beginning of September 2017.
This marks the first time a live-action television series has debuted in this manner. ABC plans to then premiere the weekly series in fall, with additional exclusive content that can only be seen on the network.
ABC, IMAX and Marvel Television also intend to work together to create a joint marketing and promotion plan for the series across their proprietary media platforms. It’s also IMAX’s first time as a financing participant in a TV pilot and series.
