Later this year, we're releasing 16 classic Captain Scarlet audio stories to mark the show's 50th anniversary!
Big Finish Productions in association with ITV Studios Global Entertainment (ITVS GE) today proudly announces a range of very special audio releases to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons – Gerry Anderson’s 1967 Supermarionation series. The production company and publisher, best known for their audio adaptations of cult hits like Doctor Who, Torchwood, The Prisoner and Terrahawks, is set to produce four Captain Scarlet releases for September 2017.
Nicholas Briggs, Executive Producer of Big Finish Productions, says: “As a long-time fan of Gerry Anderson’s work, it’s an absolute thrill for us to be releasing these classic Captain Scarlet stories for the show’s 50th anniversary. On one of my two encounters with Gerry, I showed him some of our Big Finish CDs. He told me he’d love us to make some audio adventures for his TV shows. Here we are, all these years later, and the lovely people at ITVS GE have given us the go ahead.”
Trudi Hayward, SVP Global Head of Merchandise Kids who licensed the set says “The original Gerry Anderson shows have stood the test of time and remain firm favourites with fans old and new. The 2017 50th anniversary of Captain Scarlet is a wonderful milestone and we are delighted to be working with Big Finish Productions on these very special audio releases.”
All of these classic Captain Scarlet stories will be released for the 50th anniversary of the show’s first transmission on 29th September 2017, and will be produced by Jamie Anderson of Anderson Entertainment, who says:
“Thanks to ITVS GE and Big Finish Productions, bringing all of these fantastic stories together for the first time is a really exciting way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of one of Dad’s most iconic puppet shows. Spectrum is green for September 2017!”
