The first look at BenDavid Grabinski’s Enormous adaptation is here! The Image Comics story created by Tim Daniel and artist Mehdi Cheggour has been adapted for Machinima as a digital web series. The plot takes place in a world overrun with gigantic monsters, as you may have guessed from the title. Ceren Lee stars as a woman who works for the United Nation’s Search and Rescue division looking for abandoned children. Grabinski penned the adaptation along with Troll Hunter’s Andre Ovredal; Adrian Askarieh and Joshua Wexler are producing.
Also starring Erica Gimpel, Steve Brand, Garret Coffey, Billy Miller, Dallas Liu, Joe Swamberg, Nathan Moore, Todd Farmer, Simon Barret, and Charles Melton, the full pilot for Enormous debuts on Machinima March 20th. Hit the jump to check it out.
A band of UN search and rescue men and women survive a horrific virus that nearly brings Earth to extinction. By sticking together and ignoring the odds, this makeshift family is the last of the optimists. Stubborn in the face of apparent extinction, this is a show about hope and never giving up.
About the Series:
The hit graphic novella series ENORMOUS (http://www.theenormouscomic.

The series explores how humans react and cope with survival from multiple points of views and from multiple settings around the planet. In the tone of CLOVERFIELD and THE WALKING DEAD, ENORMOUS focuses on strong characters and complicated relationships with the monsters as the background.
