A Phantom four hour mini-series is set to air in June on the SyFy channel.
While still based on the classic comic strip hero created by Lee Falk, the new miniseries radically updates The Phantom’s traditional costume and setting. The miniseries first aired in Canada at the end of December and has finally been put on SyFy’s 2010 schedule.
According to a post on SyFy’s official Twitter account (via Phantom Site), the two-part “Phantom” miniseries will air in June. The miniseries may also serve as a backdoor pilot for a TV series, depending upon the ratings and fan reaction.
According to MTV, this mini-series is unrelated to the feature film which is in development.
Here’s a preview of the mini-series:
