3net Studios Plans 4K TV Series
The company’s original 3D TV lineup includes the first native 4K project.
A few months after publicly making plans to form a movie company, 3net Studios is ready to get to work.
3net, which is a joint effort between Sony, Discovery and IMAX, just announced its first slate of projects, which includes original 3D and 4K TV shows and specials. That’s right; 3net Studios will produce a native 4K programming—a first for the industry.
That technology will go to Space, a series which will be produced in what the company calls “TotalD” (native 3D 4K, 2D 4K, 3D 2K and both 3D/2D HD formats). Space is a three-part series of hour-long episodes that cover the Big Bang to the present, as well as a little peek into the future.
Another show, Marksmen, will be the first 3D motion comic series for TV. The slate will have live-action and animated projects, including the documentary Frozen in Time: Our History in 3D, the live-action special Wingsuit Warrior: Jeb Corliss vs. the World, and a travelogue series Daydream.
“Today’s announcement marks an important first step in our ongoing mission to meet the increasing global demand for high-quality, original 3D and 4K television content head on,” said 3net President/CEO Tom Cosgrove. “We’re proud of the diverse initial slate of live-action and animated series we have created and look forward to expanding it as 3net Studios finalizes its full 2013 development schedule.”
