First-Ever Live Action NFT Series Casts Star of ‘Hawkeye’ & ‘Van Helsing’
Hawkeye and Van Helsing star Aleks Paunovic is set to star in and executive-produce sci-fi NFT series GenZeroes, Deadline reports.
The project is among the first live action NFT series and is being set up to include 10 episodes that will be augmented by motion graphic comic books. Providing finance comes through, episodes are due to begin releasing in early March.
The project is set 200 years after an alien invasion has left the world devastated, where ten factions fight to control the future of humanity.
Van Helsing writers Matt Venables and Jeremy Smith will serve as showrunners. They will also executive-produce with Neil Stevenson-Moore. Kimani Ray Smith is director. Canadian company House of Kibaa is producing. Additional casting is underway.
To watch the GenZeroes series viewers will need to purchase an NFT via the House of Kibaa website. The “GenZeroes Universe” includes a live-action series, comics, and collectibles. Each level of NFT ownership will endow different benefits with the top level allowing fractional ownership of the series.
Producers said that negotiations are under way for the series to go to a wider platform for mainstream viewing after it has completed its run as an NFT release on the House of Kibaa website.
