Firestorm minisode released by Anderson Entertainment

Anderson Entertainment – the company founded by legendary puppet master Gerry Anderson and now run by his son Jamie, has released the pilot for Firestorm, the first new Anderson production since 2005.

Gerry Anderson’s Firestorm is a new action adventure science fiction series for television comprising 26 episodes of 22 minutes each, all filmed in Ultramarionation, a real, physical way of making TV featuring advanced animatronic puppets, miniatures, physical sets, and real explosions. The first series of 26 commercial half hour episodes is now in pre-production, with partners Raydar Media, before entering production, which is anticipated to start early in 2019.

The series is set in 2102. Thanks to technological improvements climate change has been brought under control, food and energy are plentiful, and violence has all but disappeared. But just when people are at their most contented, the problems start… Explosions, sabotage, large-scale thefts of military equipment, kidnapping… the only clue as to the perpetrators is a name – BLACK ORCHID. Earth’s environmental protectors – STORM FORCE – are quickly repurposed into a force to fight this mysterious assailant. Their new operation codename… FIRESTORM.
