The GenZeroes live-action series consists of a group of episodes in the science fiction genre, with storylines built around the GenZeroes NFT collection. The series is NFT-integrated and stars Aleks Paunovic, a Canadian-born actor who has starred in Zero Contact and appeared in Hawkeye. The holders of GenZeroes NFTs get exclusive access to episodes and other additional perks. NFTs are becoming more prominent in the entertainment world and can give creators new ways to interact with their audiences, raise money to cover production costs, create new distribution windows, and overall be able to better sell movies and TV shows.2
“We are excited to announce the robust GenZeroes Roadmap and kick-off the marketing campaign around the series. We are very proud of how everything has come together and are truly grateful to launch the first ever live-action NFT series,” said Dorian Banks, Chief Executive Officer of LGL. “We are happy to see GenZeroes make history and showcase just a hint of the endless possibilities that NFTs are beginning to offer the entertainment industry,” added Mr. Banks.
