About The Continental TV series.

The Continental takes place 40 years before the events of the John Wick series and is centered around a chain of hotels located all around the world that function as a neutral territory for members of the criminal underworld. They are frequented by many hitmen and notorious murderers. It was initially envisioned as a spinoff series but was redeveloped as a three-night event series with movie length and movie budgets. Each installment will run about 90 minutes in length as a cost of about $20 million per episode.

Acclaimed writer/producer Chris Collins (Sons of Anarchy, The Wire, and The Man in the High Castle) will write the series and serve as showrunner. The show will be executive produced by a world-class creative team led by Thunder Road Pictures’ Basil Iwanyk (the John Wick film franchise, The Town, Sicario), Chad Stahelski (John Wick co-director and John Wick: Chapter 2 director), John Wick franchise screenwriter Derek Kolstad, along with Collins, David Leitch (John Wick co-director, Deadpool 2) and Keanu Reeves.

Lionsgate will produce the 3-part series for Starz.
