MUMBAI: Fox channels outside the US have picked up the global rights to the FX Productions and Marvel Television series ‘Legion’. The series will air next year day and date in more than 125 countries.
‘Legion’ is about a troubled young man who may be more than human. It introduces the story of David Haller, who since he was a teenager, has struggled with mental illness. Diagnosed as schizophrenic, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. But after a strange encounter with a fellow patient, he’s confronted with the possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees might be real.
Fox Networks Group chairman, CEO Peter Rice said, “ ‘Legion’ brings the X-Men universe to life, as a character driven, serialized TV show, in a truly amazing new way, and we’re pleased that X-Men fans will have the opportunity to see it simultaneously in the 125 countries where Fox is available.”
“FX is thrilled to collaborate with our international partners to bring ‘Legion’ to audiences worldwide and the day-and-date delivery will make this a truly global event. With the universal appeal of the X-Men franchise, fans will be amazed with the artistry and ambition that Noah Hawley and this extraordinary cast have brought to ‘Legion’,” said FX Networks and FX Productions president original programming Eric Schrier.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Fox Networks Group to launch ‘Legion’ to a massive global audience. In our storytelling, it is imperative to us that we’re creating characters and a universe that resonates with people around the world and we are so proud to introduce this cast of characters to fans everywhere,” said executive producer, Marvel’s head of television Jeph Loeb.
