Stargate Origins Series to Launch New MGM Digital Platform - Watch Teaser

Stargate Origins Series to Launch New MGM Digital Platform - Watch Teaser”

MGM's Stargate Origins will unfold over 10 episodes on a new dedicated streaming platform called Stargate Command - not unlike how Star Trek: Discovery will be native to CBS All Access rather than traditional television.

Titled "Stargate: Origins", the 10-minute episodes will follow Catherine Langford (originally played by Elizabeth Hoffman) and explore a new chapter in her early history surrounding the portal. Young Catherine embarks on a new unexpected adventure to unlock the mystery of what lies beyond the Stargate in order to save the Earth from darkness. Stargate SG-1 is one of the longest-running science-fiction series in US television history, while the original Stargate film went on to gross nearly $200 million worldwide and spawned three live-action spin-off series.

Catherine's character was present as a young child at the discovery of the Stargate in Giza in 1928, and she worked throughout her life to get the Stargate program going - facing numerous obstacles and global intrigue all through the twentieth century. Mark Ilvedson and Justin Michael Terry will serve as the writers on "Stargate Origins", which is a co-production of MGM and New Form. The online series will be directed by Mercedes Bryce Morgan.

The subscription-based Stargate Command platform is meant to be MGM's new home for the franchise and its fans, offering exclusive content not only from the production of SGO but also from the franchise's 20-year history. MGM regards the project as a way to give back to Stargate's fans. This is in addition to an animated series "Stargate Infinity" (2002), two direct-to-DVD films both released in 2008, "Stargate: The Ark of Truth" and "Stargate: Continuum", and several affiliated novels and comics.=.

"We couldn't be more excited about our partnership with MGM and their trust in us as a leading digital-first studio to deliver the next compelling chapter of this fantastic "Stargate" franchise", added New Form COO JC Cangilla. "We view "Stargate Origins" as a thank you to fans who have been keeping the spirit of the franchise alive for almost 25 years". The studio also hopes to make the platform available to the fan community worldwide, though global plans are still being hammered out. Stargate SG-1 is among the longest-running sci-fi shows in U.S. TV history.

During the heyday of "Stargate" on TV, the TV franchise racked up 380 episodes during across nearly 20 seasons of TV with shows including "Stargate SG-1", "Stargate Atlantis", and "Stargate Universe".

Stargate Origins will launch in the fall on the Stargate Command platform.

Origins will be viewable on www.stargatecommand.co, MGM's new spot for all the hottest Stargate news and content on the internet, a web site that was somehow developed for public consumption in 2017 and not, say, 1996.
