Jump into the Man of Steel’s home planet and prepare to be captivated by a whole other universe in HOOQ’s latest same day telecast offering.
Singapore: HOOQ – the largest Video on Demand service in South East Asia – is proud to further strengthen its repertoire of DC Entertainment properties with Krypton, a new DC superhero series to arrive on March 29, on HOOQ. Premiering with the first 2 episodes, new episodes will then release on HOOQ every Friday, within 24 hours of U.S. telecast.
Chief Content Officer of HOOQ, Jennifer Batty said, “We at HOOQ are incredibly excited to bring this story to our subscribers. When it comes to superheroes, Superman remains the most iconic of them all, but what do we know about the history of his family and his home planet? With a fascinating premise attached to such a beloved character, we are confident that Krypton will captivate fans of the original story while luring new ones to the world created around Superman”.
Set 200 years before Superman came to Earth, Krypton explores Kal-El’s ancestry and is rooted in his home planet of Krypton. Seg-El, grandfather of Superman, is faced with a catastrophic conflict – to either save his home or let it be destroyed – all to restore the fate of his future grandson. While rooted in the mythology of the most popular comic book character of all time, this series humanizes the powerful superhero while speaking manifold of real issues faced today.
Based on the DC characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Krypton is executive produced by legendary writer/producer David S. Goyer, whose credits include Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the classic The Dark Knight trilogy, as well as Cameron Welsh (Ash vs. Evil Dead, Constantine, The Last Ship, Australia’s Home and Away). Produced by Phantom 4 Films in association with Warner Horizon Scripted Television, the series premieres Wednesday, March 21 on SYFY in the U.S.
The series stars Cameron Cuffe (The Halcyon), Georgina Campbell (Broadchurch), Shaun Sipos (Final Destination 2), Elliot Cowan (Da Vinci’s Demons), Ann Ogbomo (World War Z), Aaron Pierre (Prime Suspect 1973), Rasmus Hardiker (Your Highness), Wallis Day (Will), with Blake Ritson (Da Vinci’s Demons) and Ian McElhinney (Game of Thrones).
