More and more we are hearing bigger and better rumblings from the world that will be Lantern City. This is the new upcoming series by Bruce Boxleitner that is grabbing the Steampunk world by the horns and hopefully pushing it a little more mainstream television. The best part of this project is that you - yes you - can submit you're own artwork, ideas, and characters to the show to be used in upcoming story arcs. See below for the official words from the producers.
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.
