Image/Shadowline Comics Announces "Faster Than Light" in Development for TV
The hit Image/Shadowline Comics series greenlit for development
Image/Shadowline Comics is pleased to announce that the hit sci-fi series FASTER THAN LIGHT by Brian Haberlin will be developed for television by Skydance Entertainment.
The FASTER THAN LIGHT series sets itself apart by pairing with an augmented reality app created by Haberlin’s Anomaly Productions, allowing readers to experience the story in 3D.
Tomorrow we discover the key to faster than light travel and our world will never be the same. In FASTER THAN LIGHT Captain William Forest and those under his storied command are in a race against time, and he’s one of the few on board who knows it. A lethal first contact and a planet-eating lifeform are just the tip of the celestial iceberg of Discovery’s quest: Save Earth and all her people from the mysterious forces coming to destroy her. Features Anomaly’s free cutting-edge Augmented Reality app, which makes it look like interactive holograms are coming out of the book.
