Indie studio MarVista Entertainment has partnered with IM Global Television to develop, co-produce and co-finance the tale of King Kong for series television.

kongBased on DeVito ArtWorks' Skull Island property and Merian C Cooper's King Kong, King Kong Skull Island is a comprehensive King Kong Universe exclusively endorsed by Kong's creator. The series is a serialised, contemporary continuation of the classic with a female-led, multi-cultural ensemble that delves fully into the wonders and horrors of Skull Island and its origins.

“It’s been a privilege to work with Joe DeVito and his truly unique, never-before-seen Kong universe,” said executive producer Dannie Festa, of World Builder Entertainment. “We feel confident that it will be hugely appealing to fans all over the world.”

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