Maximum Ride, James Patterson’s young adult franchise, is set to become a YouTube mini-series. Collective Digital Studio acquired the exclusive online rights.
The company plans an initial batch of six to 10 episodes that run between 10 and 15 minutes each. The first episode will air in spring 2015.
Collective Digital Studio is a media company that hosts leading YouTube multichannel networks. They own over 600 YouTube channels. The rights originally belonged to Columbia Pictures, who acquired Maximum Ride in 2008. The project moved to Universal Pictures, but has since been labeled “no longer in development.”
Maximum Ride is an eight-book series that follows Max Ride and her friends, all of whom have the ability to fly. They must decide whether they are meant to help save mankind or destroy it.
