In an effort to hold on to dwindling fans and make sense of convoluted plot lines that have even the writers mystified, the makers of TV’s Heroes have yet again launched another web series, Heroes: Destiny, a self-described “micro series” that has emerged from the “Create Your Hero” interactive campaign last year. The extent of the interactive element comprised of fans selecting the characteristics of the new hero, such as name, special powers, personality and physical features, which were voted on each week.
Columbian-born actor Roberto Urbina plays Santiago, a Peruvian soccer lover and devout Catholic who discovers his extraordinary gifts of accelerated probability and super speed.The show also stars Lina Esco (CBS’ Cane) and Andrea Thompson (24). and is directed by Eagle Egilsson (CSI: Miami, The Wire).
Heroes: Destiny launched this month with new episodes released every Monday. The new web series follows NBC’s last Heroes foray onto the web, Heroes: Going Postal, a well produced live action series that was abruptly cut short after only three episodes. Let’s hope a full series is in the cards for Destiny.
