The official website for Gekidan Sphere (Sphere Theater Troupe), the live-action television series starring the four-member voice actress and idol group Sphere, began streaming a teaser trailer on Tuesday. The teaser previews the show's theme song "Life is Wonder!!" by Sphere. The site also revealed a new visual, and the titles and premiere dates of each episode of the show.
The show is a collaboration between five playwrights and Sphere, and will be an omnibus series exploring various genres. Each episode has two halves with a different director, and a new episode will debut every two weeks. The episodes, their directors, and their premiere dates on Tokyo MX are as follows:
