Since NFTs first appeared, their creators have been making vague promises about video games, TV shows, and a variety of other media productions to boost the value of these tokens.
And for the longest time, no one ever really provided any details about how this was going to manifest.
Well, NFTs are apparently getting their first TV show, and it could be airing sooner than you think.
On March 6th, it was reported that Dolphin Entertainment had partnered with the Ethereum-powered Flower Girls NFT collection to create a new TV series (both scripted and unscripted).
Not only that, but this children’s entertainment company will apparently release books, games, music, and all kinds of other merchandise – all inspired by these NFTs.
What is the Flower Girls NFT Collection?
For those who don’t know, The Flower Girls is a collection of non-fungible tokens that each feature a portrait of a young woman. The collection has proven to be quite popular among women, with celebs like Eva Longoria, Brie Larson, Reese Witherspoon and Gwyneth Palrow currently holding these assets.
In just a few months, this collection has moved past $15 million in sales, and its creators donate 20% of all profits to children’s charities. This altruistic nature might explain the NFTs’ popularity among some of the biggest celebs in the world. Today, there are more than 10,000 unique NFTs within this collection, and they were all created by the well-known artist Varvana Alay.
The Flower Girls collection actually appears to feature legitimate works of art. The NFTs feature soft, pastel colors and a style resembling those of pieces by Frida Kahlo – especially her self portraits.
One of the most common complaints about popular NFTs is that they have no real artistic value, but this particular collection appears to stand out.
Will This TV Show Actually Happen?
Dolphin Entertainment and The Flower Girls are definitely on the same page when it comes to ethics. Both organizations have donated to children’s charities, and this might be why the two have joined forces.
But can Dolphin actually pull off a children’s show based on NFTs?
Well, they’ve already managed to create a number of films and shows under their subsidiary, Dolphin Films. These projects include web series like “Aim High” and “South Beach,” plus movies like “Max Steel.”
Perhaps most notably, Dolphin Films produced Justin Bieber’s “BELIEVE” movie. They have a solid background in children’s entertainment, as their team has worked on projects like Nickelodeon’s “Zoey 101.”
The truth is that Dolphin Entertainment has all the tools necessary to help The Flower Girls make the transition from NFTs to TV.
Other NFT TV Shows
Of course, this isn’t the first time we’ve heard about NFT TV shows.
Reese Witherspoon’s production company Hello Sunshine has recently partnered with another NFT collective called World of Women to develop films and TV shows.
Once again, the characters depicted in the NFTs will take center stage.
Could this be the beginning of a new trend? We’ll have to wait and see.
