Movie by B.R. firm sets Syfy viewer benchmark

Jules Verne's Mysterious Island, a movie produced by Baton Rouge-based production and film sales company K2 Pictures+K2D, shattered the Syfy network's 2 million viewers benchmark, snaring 2.4 million viewers when it premiered Saturday, Feb. 11. That made it the most-watched of the network's "Saturday Original Movies" since Sharktopus in September 2010. "We are very pleased with the viewer response and are quite grateful to all 2.4 million of them," says producer George Kostuch of K2 Pictures+K2D. "Syfy really got behind the film, and I am making sure it is not the last K2 Pictures title that premieres on the network." Green Apple Entertainment, which along with K2 Pictures+K2D secured the Syfy licensing deal, will bring Jules Verne's Mysterious Island to VOD and DVD in May.
