Pantheon is starting off with quite a legacy!
The primetime, hour-long animated drama series has received an order for two eight-episode seasons. The project is from Craig Silverstein and AMC Studios and is based on a series of short stores by Ken Liu about “Uploaded Intelligence”, or human consciousness being uploaded into the cloud.
Sarah Barnett, president of AMC Networks Entertainment Group and AMC Studios, had the following to say about the new series:
“Pantheon is an entertaining and provocative series about personal relationships and what happens to them when the boundary of life is removed from the human condition, and we’re looking to push other boundaries here too, in making an animated drama that aims to be every bit as moving, immersive and visceral as any premium, live-action scripted series. We are fortunate to have incredible source material from Ken Liu, one of the most celebrated science fiction writers at work today, and we are delighted to once again be working with Craig Silverstein. Both of these writers know how to weave the intimate and the epic into a powerful tale.”
