Microsoft’s original TV shows are scheduled to start this June.
Included in that is the Halo TV series which will be executively produced by Steven Spielberg, and a Halo “digital feature” executively produced by Ridley Scott and is due out by the end of 2014.
“Halo” television series
The “Halo” television series is a groundbreaking original series based on the award-winning “Halo” franchise. Award-winning filmmaker, director and producer Steven Spielberg will executive produce the live-action TV series, created in partnership with 343 Industries and Amblin Television.
The apparent first show to be broadcast is the 13th annual Bonnaroo music festival which goes Live on Friday, 13th June through to Sunday, 15th June.
Other shows in production include an unscripted series about international street soccer, an original drama about robotic servants in a dystopian world, and a documentary about the search for discarded Atari games in a desert landfill – which were unearthed yesterday in New Mexico – amongst several others.
