With a female lead

A King Kong live action television show is headed to the small-screen, and the show will feature a female lead.

The news comes soon after the big ape returned to movie theaters to wreak havoc in Warner Bros.' "Kong: Skull Island", which was released just last month.

Now that King Kong is relevant once more thanks to a very successful Kong: Skull Island movie, the big ape is sticking around.

The TV project will be executive produced by Penner and Title, along with Dannie Festa of World Builder Entertainment.

MarVista CEO Fernando Szew commented on Penner and Title's take on the Kong mythology. "We feel confident that it will be hugely appealing to fans all over the world". "It is with great anticipation that we partner with IM Global Television to bring this exciting new vision directly into viewers' homes". The estate of Kong's creator approved of the show. (Well, other than both star King Kong, of course).

A global box office haul of $553 million was enough for Jordan Vogt-Roberts' to be considered a bankable success, thereby setting up the next entry in Legendary's MonsterVerse - namely Godzilla: King of the Monsters - quite nicely. While Universal holds a majority of the movie rights, Time Warner owns the rights to the original 1933 RKO film, while StudioCanal owns the worldwide rights to the 1976 theatrical remake and its sequel and Paramount owns the domestic rights to the 1976 film. Joe DeVito's original book will serve as the basis for this TV series. "We love Stacy and Jonathan's approach to this adaptation and look forward to partnering with MarVista as we bring this gripping tale of survival and adventure to life for a new generation of Kong fans", said IM Global Television President Mark Stern.
