Along with Electric Entertainment’s feature films and the aforementioned shows, the Electric Now app wll also feature the beloved shows Leverage and The Librarians.
“For a long time, we have wanted to create a hub where we could aggregate all our various fan bases from Leverage, The Librarians, Almost Paradise and all of our podcast subscribers into a single space. This will be a one stop shop to find all the content we make and distribute. Unlike larger studios, we have been fortunate to have nurtured a direct relationship with our audience through social media, personal appearances and electronic communication. This app gives us a central platform to show them how much we enjoy and treature that relationship.”
Most of the app’s content will be free with support from advertising. Viewers will also have the option to purchase programs without commercial interruption.
