CONtv just launched earlier this month, but the convention and pop culture-focused streaming network already has a big piece of content planned. The Cinedigm and Wizard World-owned channel will release its first feature-length film Mythica: A Quest for Heroes on March 31, 2015.
Mythica: A Quest for Heroes is the first flick in a larger, epic trilogy. The first CONtv film tells the story of Marek (played by Survivor’s Melanie Stone), an escaped servant who learns to develop her unique powers through her wizard mentor Gojun (acted by fan-favorite Kevin Sorbo of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Andromeda). After her sister Teela (Dawn of the Dragonslayer’s Nicola Posener) is kidnapped by an ogre, Marek gathers a motley gang of adventurers to help her rescue her sister from captivity.
