This marks Valiant’s first feature-length original digital series. The series is being directed by Aaron & Sean Schoenke. Along with Rowe, Kevin Porter (Dodgeball) and Ciera Foster (Straight Outta Compton) have also joined the cast.
Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani, talked about working on this secret project and why fans should get ready to be blown away.
“We’ve been quietly working behind the scenes on this series since 2015 and are incredibly excited to be debuting the first look at footage this year at New York Comic Con. We’ve set out to make the best and most ambitious series ever produced in the digital space – one that will live up to the high standards we’ve set in publishing. As Valiant gears up for an upcoming slate of film, television and video game releases, we felt the timing was right to begin to produce live-action digital content that would both give ours fans an experience truly worthy of the Valiant Universe, while also introducing new fans to the Valiant characters in the same way the animated television shows of the 1980s and 1990s did for comics in years past. Get ready to lose your mind – seeing Ninjak in action for the first time in nothing short of incredible.”
