Universal Pictures is bringing Les Misérables, the motion-picture adaptation of the beloved global stage sensation to the big screen this Christmas. The emotion and drama that unfolds in this epic production is unmatched. Leading up to this highly anticipated event on Dec. 25, NBCUniversal is partnering with Comcast to bring behind-the-scenes materials on Les Misérables to more Americans across the country. And Xfinity TV customers will have the inside track to get even closer to the actors, characters and production in ways they haven’t been able to experience before. NBCUniversal and Comcast are reaching far and wide on TVs, PCs, tablets and smartphones to engage Les Misérables fans, and those who have yet to experience the worldwide phenomenon.
Beginning Thursday, Dec. 13, the companies will kick off a series of sneak peeks and inside looks across multiple platforms. Les Misérables content will be prominently featured on Xfinity On Demand, which generates more than 400 million views per month; on Xfinity.com, one of the country’s most-visited web portals; and on Xfinity.com/TV, a primary online destination for customers to watch a quarter of a million video entertainment choices.
For the first time ever, more than 20 million Xfinity TV customers will be able to experience behind-the-scenes footage from Les Misérables across Xfinity TV viewing platforms. On-the-set segments will highlight the compelling scenes that were filmed during the production. And customers may follow the evolution of Les Misérables from Hugo’s classic novel to a worldwide musical phenomenon to today’s musical epic feature film on Xfinity.com/TV, Xfinity On Demand and through the Xfinity TV Player app for tablets and smartphones. Plus, Xfinity.com, the Xfinity Facebook page and Twitter feed will be abuzz with expert commentary and viewer observations as the anticipation builds and after Les Misérables makes its debut.
As the on-stage production continues to break box-office records everywhere during its 28th year and this new musical epic nears its debut on the big screen, Comcast and NBCUniversal are making more content available in more ways, so more Americans may experience this breathtaking experience wherever they are this holiday season and in the weeks to come.
