Marvel Television has officially announced an Inhumans TV series is coming to ABC and it is going to be presented a lot differently than we have ever seen before.
The new series will premiere in IMAX commercial theaters, marking the first time a TV series has debuted like this. The first two episodes of the ABC series, which is set to arrive in fall of 2017 under the title Marvel’s The Inhumans, will run worldwide exclusively in IMAX for two weeks for the beginning of September 2017. ABC will then premiere the series in a weekly format.
An Inhumans movie was originally slated for November of 2018 but it kept getting pushed back, so we had a hunch they might bring it to the small screen.
The format is definitely different and there was some explanation as to why they were going this route in regards to presenting the show on such a unique format.
“This unprecedented alliance represents a bold, innovative approach to launching great TV content for a worldwide audience,” said Ben Sherwood, co-chairman, Disney Media Networks and president, Disney|ABC Television Group. “It highlights Disney|ABC’s unrelenting commitment to finding new and creative ways to showcasing our very best programming and increasing global engagement and reach.
“This first-of-its-kind multi-platform production, distribution and marketing agreement brings together Marvel Television’s unique brand of entertainment, ABC’s unparalleled audience and IMAX’s brand and global fanboy demographic,” said IMAX CEO, Rich Gelfond. “It also takes our decades-long relationship with The Walt Disney Company to a whole new level, jointly breaking new ground in the industry. We are confident our exhibition partners will be excited to work with us on this innovative launch of a series across the IMAX network.”
