Inhumans Series Coming to ABC & IMAX

ABC has ordered a new television series based on Marvel's Inhumans. In an unusual move, the first two episodes will air in IMAX for a few weeks in early September. The rest of the series will then air weekly on ABC. The show is confirmed to follow Black Bolt & the inhuman royal family, who most fans assumed would be in the canceled Inhumans movie. It's unclear how it will tie into the inhumans storyline on Agents of SHIELD. Ben Sherwood, Disney Media Group co-chairman and Disney|ABC Television Group president said,
This unprecedented alliance represents a bold, innovative approach to launching great TV content for a worldwide audience. 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.
IMAX CEO Rich Gelfond commented,
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. 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.
Marvel president of television, publishing, & brand Dan Buckley remarked,
We're happy to see this unique deal come together, working with our partners. In an ever-changing world of distribution and consumption, it’s very exciting to be part of a groundbreaking initiative that takes us to the forefront of this evolution.
