Marvel’s ‘The Inhumans’ Greenlit as ABC Series
November 14, 2016
ABC has ordered a new series, “Marvel’s The Inhumans,” based on the classic comic-book characters, in partnership with IMAX. Under a production, marketing and distribution agreement with the theater chain, a version of the first two episodes of the live-action series will premiere in IMAX theaters next summer. ABC will then debut the weekly hour-long drama on television the following fall.
The series will be produced by Marvel Television in conjunction with ABC Studios and filmed entirely with IMAX cameras. IMAX, a financing partner on the show, will premiere “The Inhumans” in September, 2017.
Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, the Inhumans are a race of superpowered beings who first appeared in Marvel Comics publications in 1965. Inhuman characters appeared last season on ABC drama “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD.” The new series, however, will not be a spinoff of “SHIELD.” It will focus on Black Bolt, the leader of the Inhumans, and his family.
ABC’s broadcast of the first two episodes in the series will feature original content not included in the IMAX version.
“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.”
A movie version of “The Inhumans” had at one time been part of Marvel’s feature-film slate, slotted for premiere in 2018. The feature project was later scrubbed from Marvel’s slate.
No writer or showrunner has yet been attached to the new series.
“We’re happy to see this unique deal come together, working with our partners,” said Dan Buckley, president, Marvel Television, publishing and brand. “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.”
IMAX CEO Rich Gelfond added, “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.”

I didn't pay attention to it but I think it had something to do with the X-Men that's one of the lines of dialogue I've heard.
The last comic book superheroes TV series I paid attention to were Smallville and Agent Carter (Season 1 and the first couple of episode of Seaon 2).
All these new ones on TV like SHIELD and GOTHAM CITY and others, I have not watched a single episode of.
