MarVista Entertainment is joining forces with independent studio IM Global to develop and co-produce the tale of King Kong for TV.

Inspired by DeVito ArtWorks' Skull Island property and Merian C. Cooper's King Kong, the new series is a contemporary continuation of the classic film with a female-led, multi-cultural cast who delve into the wonders and horrors of Skull Island.

“It’s been a privilege to work with Joe DeVito and his truly unique, never-before-seen Kong universe,” said Dannie Festa from World Builder Entertainment, who will executive produce the series.

“We feel confident that it will be hugely appealing to fans all over the world.”

Jonathan Penner and Stacy Title are set to write and executive produce the new show.

Fernando Szew, CEO of MarVista, added: “Jonathan and Stacy have taken a world that has enraptured audiences in all its many forms over the years and given it a contemporary, female-focused spin.

“It is with great anticipation that we partner with IM Global Television to bring this exciting new vision directly into viewers’ homes.”
