“The New Adventures of Peter + Wendy,” a web series that puts the leading characters from “Peter Pan” in a modern light, now counts Jim Beaver as one of its stars. For the upcoming second season, Beaver (of “Supernatural” and “Deadwood”) will join the “Peter + Wendy” cast as George Darling, Wendy’s father.
Created by Kyle Walters and Shawn deLoache, the web series gets its inspiration from the novel, “Peter and Wendy,” by J. M. Barrie. The show’s 24-episode first season, which is available on EpicRobotTV’s YouTube channel and on thenewpeterandwendy.com, starred Walters himself as Peter Pan and Paula Rhodes as Wendy Darling. Other cast members include Brennan Murray, Graham Kurtz, and Lovlee Carroll.
“Peter + Wendy” has garnered about 200,000 monthly views on its YouTube home. New episodes had been released every Wednesday and Friday, and a current Indiegogo campaign is in the works to raise the necessary funding for season two.
Adam Laupus, Rhodes, and Jenn Powell produce the web series.
