BET, MARVEL TO UNVEIL BLACK PANTHER

BET Networks and Marvel Animation will show a preview of the upcoming Black Panther animated series at Comic-Con International.

The series, scheduled to lauch in the first quarter of 2009, will be spotlighted during BET's panel on Saturday, July 26.

The series will be adapted directly from the first six issues of Marvel's Black Panther comic book, written by Reginald Hudlin, BET's president, entertainment.

"As a lifelong comic book reader, I didn't think anything could top the excitement of writing one of my favorite characters, the Black Panther," Hudlin said. "I'm so proud I've been able to maintain a successful run of the series over the past three years while keeping my 'day job' of programming a network. But now to have both of my worlds collide, to have a faithful adaptation of my own work as a prime time series on the network -- it's a dream come true. The Black Panther has always been an inspirational character to me, and now I get to share that inspiration with the widest audience he's ever had.

"I'm very excited to be working with Marvel. It's been great working with Joe Quesada and Axel Alonso on the publishing side, and I look forward to a similar experience with Eric Rollman and his team at Marvel Animation.

"I want to give special thanks to Denys Cowan, my SVP of Animation, who is doing a fantastic job of bringing the art of John Romita Jr. to life."

Eric Rollman, President of Marvel Animation said, "The Black Panther is a working example of Marvel's initiative to broaden our fan base by working with new and innovative partners. Reggie and his team can uniquely take material that is near and dear to them and re-imagine it for a whole new audience. We look forward to a long and successful relationship with BET."
