This looks intriguing, especially with the audience engagement piece.
Also, it’s in glorious BROWN.
The new Steampunk show Lantern City, from executive producer Bruce Boxleitner, is an exciting foray into fan-inspired and fan-created television. It combines first-rate storytelling, innovative production design, and a rich world that fans will fall in love with. Even though it will blend great science fiction with dynamic storylines, at its heart the show asks two questions: how far would you go to be with the person you love and what lengths would you go to in order to survive?
Lantern City highlights the steampunk genre to create a one-of-a-kind television experience. Other properties have had Steampunk elements, but this is the first mainstream television show to proudly wear the label of Steampunk. Current fans of the subgenre will not be disappointed and it will attract a much wider audience to the long neglected world of Steampunk. The show is unique in that it allows viewers to be involved in the process – a first for any television show.
The typist has a long history of getting her fannish heart broken but her greatest joy in life came via her involvement with fandom, so she’ll pass this along to her DH Rock Fall in the hopes that we’ll have a new favorite show again soon.
So what do we get to see? When do we get to see it? And can we build it inworld or is the “interactive” part more like “buy our Steampunk stuff?”
