Wakanda-set TV series in the works from Ryan Coogler
The Walt Disney Co. revealed the in-the-works tv task on Monday, along with news that Coogler’s Distance Media has actually gotten in a brand-new five-year tv offer with the business.
No information beyond the reality that the series would be “based in the Kingdom of Wakanda” were provided.
Coogler is presently dealing with a follow-up to “Black Panther,” which is set to be launched July 8, 2022.
“As avid consumers of television, we couldn’t be happier to be launching our television business with Bob Iger, Dana Walden and all the amazing studios under the Disney umbrella. We look forward to learning, growing, and building a relationship with audiences all over the world through the Disney platforms,” Coogler stated in a declaration on behalf of Distance Media.
“We are especially excited that we will be taking our first leap with Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso and their partners at Marvel Studios where we will be working closely with them on select MCU shows for Disney+. We’re already in the mix on some projects that we can’t wait to share.”
