There Be Monsters is a 10-part scripted podcast that follows:
"Boyega [as] Jack Locke, a mysterious hero with a vendetta who infiltrates a Silicon Valley body hacking startup run by an enigmatic CEO Max Fuller (Criss), whose highly secretive creations promise to enhance human biology in incredible ways. Of course, every drug has a side effect."
Luckily, this project was completed amid the pandemic, with the stars recording the episodes from their homes. It comes as part of iHearPodcast network's commitment to creating engaging pod-dramas and using the podcast genre to tell innovative and creative stories.
Conal Byrne, president of the iHeartPodcast network, spoke about the creative process amid the pandemic saying:
"The process to develop this scripted show and the ability to capture the connection, emotions and overall dynamic between the cast members while recording remotely, from across the globe, was unlike anything I've ever seen."
Boyega also spoke about the exciting project, saying:
"Getting to explore this format of storytelling whilst also adjusting to new methods of recording with the cast members made it an exciting process. I'm thrilled it all came together and hope audiences are just as drawn in as I was to this sci-fi thriller series."
Boyega, who also signed on as a producer, took to Twitter to respond to the exciting news.
There Be Monsters will be available later this year on the iHeartPodcast Network and also stars Marley Shelton (Rampage), Clark Gregg (Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and Tony nominee Sahr Ngaujah. Be sure to listen!
