Heroes: Reborn will be among the six television programs featured in the inaugural Primetime lineup at the 40th Toronto International Film Festival.

This will mark the world premiere for the Heroes revival.

Other television projects that will be shown on the big screen at the festival include the Hulu-Lionsgate comedy Casual, which was created by Zander Lehmann and directed by Jason Reitman, and Iceland's thriller Trapped, which was created by Baltasar Kormákur. The first two episodes of Season 2 of the French supernatural series Les Revenants and Netflix's documentary Keith Richards: Under the Influence, which was directed by Morgan Neville, are also featured in the lineup as is Argentina's eco-thriller CROMO, which was created by Lucía Puenzo and Nicolás Puenzo.

"The growing convergence and artistic equality between television and cinema has ushered in a new era of high-quality, small-screen programming," Piers Handling, TIFF's director and chief executive officer, said in a statement Thursday. "Primetime aims to spotlight the cross-pollination of these two moving-image cultures, showcasing the bold and impressive work that's being produced on an international scale."

"Television has entered an artistic renaissance; we're seeing, among other things, many filmmakers experimenting with that medium to broaden their forms of storytelling," added festival programmer Michael Lerman. "The strongest storytellers are masters of change, and TV offers a narrative flexibility, a platform and a luxury for filmmakers to explore ways of telling longer stories that delve deeper into their characters."

The 40th Toronto International Film Festival is to run Sept. 10-20.
