• “Hawkeye” Star To Produce Sci-Fi NFT Series, According To GenZeroes

  • Aleks Paunovic, best known for his roles in Van Helsing and Disney’s Hawkeye, will star in and co-executive produce GenZeroes, a live-action NFT series. House of Kibaa, an NFT studio, will release the series in March.

    The writers of “Van Helsing” have joined the sci-fi NFT series.

    Paunovic isn’t the only Van Helsing collaborator on the NFT series. The showrunners of GenZeroes are the writers of the film, Matt Venables and Jeremy Smith. The GenZeroes crew also includes executive producer Neil Stevenson-Moore and director Kimani Ray Smith.

    The sci-fi NFT series takes place 200 years in the future, after the earth has been devastated by an extraterrestrial invasion. The series will follow ten factions of the remaining humans as they fight for control of humanity’s future.

    The NFT series will consist of ten episodes as well as motion graphic comic books. Furthermore, only holders of House of Kibaa GenZeroes NFTs will be able to watch the series.

    Not to mention that the studio intends to offer rewards from any future partnerships the show may strike with other platforms. As a result, NFT owners have partial ownership of the series.

    Notably, House of Kibaa issued “GenX,” a comparable collection of NFTs, in December. While these are not officially part of the GenZeroes NFTs, they do provide holders with benefits such as behind-the-scenes content and unique drops.

    GenZeroes has some of the most well-known names for an NFT series to date.

    Paunovic, who portrays a villain in Disney’s latest smash streaming drama Hawkeye, is one of the most high-profile actors to commit to an NFT series thus far. In an interview with Deadline, he said of the NFT project, “It’s a progression in entertainment, and I am pleased to be working with House of Kibaa.”

    To be sure, the popularity of NFT TV shows is rapidly increasing. TIME Studios, for example, just announced two new children’s shows based on NFT collections. In addition, some smaller-scale productions, such as the BAYC-featuring Red Ape Family, have already aired online.
