Yahoo! Premieres Tom Hanks' 'Electric City,' Immersive Online Animated Series

Tom Hanks’ animated series “Electric City” will premiere on Yahoo! Screen on July 17. Check out the trailer below.

“Electric City” is a 10-episode action-sci-fi-adventure series featuring a voice cast lead by Hanks, plus Jeanne Tripplehorn (“Big Love”), Holland Taylor (“Two and a Half Men”) and Ginnifer Goodwin (“Once Upon a Time”), among others. Each episode is between five and seven minutes in length.

Aside from the animation, “Electric City” aims for a fully immersive and interactive experience with a 3-D map of the electric city itself, behind-the-scenes footage of the cast, and games. Yahoo! touts it as the “first-of-its-kind 360 degree online interaction of digital, social, mobile and gaming media.”

The show is produced by Playtone and Reliance Entertainment.
