What’s Bryan Singer been up to you last saw him? Not an X-Men film. Apparently Warner Bros. has so much faith in Singer since he did such a bang up job on Superman Returns that they’ve handed him a series which will air on the internet. Yep, no giant movie screens or television screens for this acclaimed director. He need not be bound by those constraints. YouTube, that’s where the future is for big Hollywood directors.
All joking aside, I think that this is the way to go. The studio has no need to worry about the network cancelling the series before it has a chance to find an audience, It’s something that people can watch anywhere/ anytime and it can spread virally through social media sharing (like Facebook). With the success of more independent web series on services like YouTube it’s no surprise to finally see a studio jump into this small pond.
The premise of the digital series looks very interesting. The sci-fi fan in me is going apeshit. With the way technology is progressing in this world this could be a snap shot of the “not to distant future”, and as we all know those stories make for some of the best sci-fi. Enjoy the trailer above and some stills from the series below.
A futuristic online series, where the human race is hardwired to the Internet, is coming this summer. From producer Bryan Singer (“The Usual Suspects” / “X-Men: First Class”), the highly anticipated live-action web series “H+ The Digital Series” will make its debut August 8 on YouTube. Directed by Stewart Hendler (“Sorority Row”), and starring an acclaimed international cast that includes Alexis Denisof (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), Amir Arison (“Law & Order: SVU) and David Clayton Rogers (“Jane By Design”), “H+ The Digital Series” takes viewers on an episodic, apocalyptic journey where technology has gone horrifically wrong.
