To coincide with the arrival of the fourth series of Primeval, ITV.com is to screen five “unique and exciting” webisodes detailing what happened between the devastating end of series 3 and the start of the new run.
The 5minute episodes will reveal how the ARC was resurrected by new boss Philip Burton (Alexander Siddig), and how new team members, Matt and Jess, were selected.
ITV say the videos will launch on DEcember 22nd as part of a new Primeval website which will offer fans in-depth character profiles and galleries as well as being ” the centre of all of Primeval’s social media activity.”
Ben Freeman, Senior Editor for Soaps & Drama on ITV.com said: “We are delighted to be working with Impossible Pictures to offer fans of the show this new strand of thrilling content that builds on the excitement in the show.”
The show, which was axed by ITV, has been resurrected after a funding between ITV, BBC backed multichannel broadcaster UKTV, and series producers Impossible Pictures.
