Los Angeles — The Kingdom of Wakanda is staking the lawn on television.
The Walt Disney Company states that a series set in the “Black Panther” kingdom will be developed for Disney + streaming services.
The planned series is part of a five-year exclusive television contract announced by Disney with filmmaker Ryan Coogler’s Proximity Media Company.
Coogler wrote and directed the 2018 Black Panther, a box office hit that turned Chadwick Boseman into a superstar. The actor died of cancer in August 2020.
The Black Panther character was created by Stanley and Jack Kirby for Marvel Comics. Marvel Comics became part of Disney in 2009 when media giants acquired Marvel Entertainment.
