Machinima announced earlier that the Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles animated series will return next year for a second season, which will consist of ten episodes and introduce more DC characters into this alternate reality. And now, the programming service has unveiled its full upcoming slate, and it contains two more projects from DC Entertainment.
First, we have the contest series DC’s Hero Project, which will be overseen by Geoff Johns and other judges. In this contest, eight contestants must create a live action short film based on DC Comics’ Starman. The other series is #4Hero, which is based on the Dial H for Hero comic books. This project focuses on a young woman who temporarily becomes a superhero thanks to a smartphone app.
Full descriptions of both shows can be found below. Stay tuned for more as we have it. For Machinima’s complete upcoming slate, click the link above.
DC’s Hero Project – Machinima, Blue Ribbon Content, and DC Entertainment are setting out to discover the next great creator for the world of DC Comics. Eight contestants compete in elimination challenges to develop a live-action short video based on their own interpretations of characters from DC Comics’ Starman comic book series. Well-known guest judges and celebrity special guests will join bestselling writer and DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns and a panel of esteemed judges to oversee the entire competition.
#4Hero – A modern adaptation of DC Comics’ cult-favorite classic Dial H For Hero, #4Hero is a live-action, VFX-heavy action-comedy about a young woman named Nellie Tribble who is quietly desperate to make her mark on the world, but wholly unprepared to do so. Nellie stumbles upon a life-altering smartphone app that allows her to instantly become a Super Hero for a short amount of time. The problem is her super powers are dictated by whatever is trending on social media at that moment, and they are always only semi-useful.
