It seems that we in some way missed writing about Pantheon, AMC Networks’ first-ever animated primetime drama collection, when it was first introduced. However since there have been a number of new solid additions made lately, we now have an excuse to right that mistake.
William Damage (The Unbelievable Hulk, Captain America: Civil Struggle), Maude Apatow (Euphoria, The King of Staten Island), Corey Stoll (Ant-Man, Home of Playing cards), and Lara Pulver (Sherlock) are the most recent members of the Pantheon solid, becoming a member of one hell of a formidable lineup of actors who’ve been connected to this intriguing sci-fi drama for some time already. Get the main points in regards to the upcoming collection under.
AMC has inked a multi-year unique cope with Craig Silverstein (Flip, Terra Nova), the creator of Pantheon, to develop and produce new reveals for the community. However earlier than we begin excited about tasks which have but to be cooked up, let’s familiarize ourselves with Pantheon:
Primarily based on a set of quick tales from Ken Liu about Uploaded Intelligence, or, human consciousness uploaded to the “Cloud,” Pantheon focuses on Maddie (Katie Chang), a bullied teen who receives mysterious assist from somebody on-line. The stranger is quickly revealed to be her lately deceased father, David (Daniel Dae Kim), whose consciousness has been uploaded to the Cloud following an experimental damaging mind scan. David is the primary of a brand new type of being: an “Uploaded Intelligence” or “UI,” however he is not going to be the final, as a worldwide conspiracy unfolds that threatens to set off a brand new type of world conflict.
The concept of uploaded consciousnesses has been a staple of science fiction for years; a few quasi-recent examples of it showing as a central a part of movie and tv embody Wally Pfister’s 2014 film Transcendence and Greg Daniels’ Amazon comedy Add, which premiered final summer season. However as we get nearer and nearer to this element of science fiction changing into a actuality, I think storytellers can be partaking with this idea much more.
William Damage will lend his voice to a legendary genius billionaire character named Stephen Holstrom, and Apatow will voice Maddie’s new good friend, Justine. Stoll and Pulver will voice a number of characters all through the present. However get a load of the remainder of this solid: along with Kim and Chang, who had been talked about within the synopsis, there’s Paul Dano, Rosemarie DeWitt, Aaron Eckhart, Taylor Schilling, Ron Livingston, Chris Diamantopoulos, Raza Jaffrey, Scoot McNairy, Anika Noni Rose, Gray Griffin, SungWon Cho, Kevin Durand, Samuel Roukin, and Krystina Alabado. Whoa.
AMC has already given Pantheon a two-season order, and every season will encompass eight one-hour episodes.
