Apple’s streaming platform has ordered a new live-action series from the popular MonsterVerse franchise. The idea is to bring an original Godzilla and Titans show produced by Legendary Television to Apple TV+.
Following the thunderous battle between Godzilla and the Titans that leveled San Francisco and the shocking new reality that the monsters are real, the untitled series explores one family’s journey to uncover their buried secrets and a legacy linking them to the secret organization known as Monarch.
According to the report, the Apple TV+ series is co-created and executive produced by Chris Black and Matt Fraction. Joby Harold and Tory Tunnell are also part of the executive production team along with Hiro Matsuoka and Takemasa Arita of Toho Co., which owns the rights to the Godzilla characters.
Godzilla is one of the biggest franchises in cinema, and there have been four successful films released since the MonsterVerse reboot in 2014. These four films have together grossed around $2 billion at the global box office.
While Apple TV + focuses primarily on its original shows and movies, the company has been investing in popular franchises to make its streaming platform more attractive to subscribers. Apple recently launched the show based on Isaac Asimov’s award-winning science fiction book series Foundation, and it has also partnered with the James Bond franchise for an exclusive documentary.
