Coming August 8th is the H+ The Digital Series. Produced by Bryan Singer (The Usual Suspects, X-Men: First Class), this will be a live-action web series. Directed by Stewart Handler (Sorority Row) and starring 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."
The H+ The Digital Series channel on YouTube is live and if you subscribe now you will have access to exclusive content about the show.
"Our first venture into the digital space gives us the freedom to engage fans with new content that is immersive, interactive and is tailored to be enjoyed online," said Bryan Singer. "H+ The Digital Series on YouTube provides us with a strong two-way dialogue with our fans, creating a deeper and ongoing connection."
If you plan on going to Comic-Con, there will be a screening of H+ The Digital Series on Friday, July 13th, starting at 7:30 pm. There will be a Q&A session following that, hosted by Matt Atchity, Editor-In-Chief of Rotten Tomatoes. Alexis Denisof, David Clayton Rogers, Sean Gunn (Gilmore Girls), John Cabrera (Co-Writer), Stewart Hendler (Director) and Jason Taylor (Producer) will be in attendance.
From the press release:
H+ The Digital Series takes viewers on an episodic, apocalyptic journey into the future where consumers are rapidly installing a chip called "HPlus" into their nervous systems that allows them to access the Internet 24 hours a day - by just thinking it. One day, a virus is released - causing a third of the world's population to die instantly. The series deals with the massive political and human changes that take place, the fight for survival and the mystery to discover who is behind this atrocity.
This could be potentially groundbreaking if it blows up. Judging by the trailer below it seems to have some sort of budget going for it, and the numerous scenes of dead bodies just screams apocalypse (which I love). Bryan Singer is a pretty big name to be involved with a YouTube show, so it will be interesting to see what happens to this format if H+ The Digital Series succeeds.
