VIEWERS will get the chance to help a young woman called Emma Gossett try to save the multiverse as realities collapse around her in upcoming sci-fi project The Karada.

The project - consisting of a TV drama series and tie-in comic book - has been announced by Heroes writer Jim Martin, Tea4two Entertainment and Furnace Fighter Media. A trailer is embedded below.

Tea4two was one of the production companies behind Emmy Award-winning participation drama The Truth About Marika (see video below), a Swedish TV series in which viewers helped solve the mystery of the title character's disappearance, and the Emmy-nominated Conspiracy for Good, a similar project developed by Heroes creator Tim Kring.

A run of digital comic books, illustrated by artist Hugo Arias, will be released throughout the project and then collected in a graphic novel.

Each component allows the audience to influence the story. Producer Tom Liljeholm explained: "For example, participants will be called upon to write in the details of Emma's alternate realities, the basis of which will be produced into a digital comic series. Further, as our heroine in the dramatic series crosses paths with these alternative lives, participants will feel the impact of their contributions on the storyline."

Joining Jim Martin in the creative team are director Jakob Berglund of Furnace Fighter Media; Ki Henriksson, who penned the original concept of The Karada, writer for The Truth about Marika and Conspiracy for Good ARGs, and Tom's partner in Tea4two Entertainment; and Carrie Cutforth-Young, a writer and multimedia artist based in Toronto.
