Xbox and Channel 4 partner for sci-fi series
April 7, 2014
The deal will see Channel 4 air the drama exclusively in the UK in 2015 at the same time as Microsoft makes the show available to Xbox owners across North America.
The eight part drama series will be produced by Kudos, maker of Broadchurch and The Tunnel.
“This deal with Channel 4 and Kudos underscores Xbox Entertainment Studios’ commitment to programming premium TV series with global partners and creating engaging interactive experiences,” said Nancy Tellem, president of Microsoft’s studio operation. “It sits alongside other original commissions, including a Halo TV series executive produced by Steven Spielberg.”
