Bryan Singer and McG have signed on to produce two live-action multi-platform digital series for Warner Premiere.
The two titles are co-financed with Dolphin Entertainment, which executive produced the hit TV shows Zoey 101 and Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide. If successful, the digital series could segue into film and television.
Singer (X-Men, Superman Returns) is producing H+, described as “an episodic two-and-a-half hour, apocalyptic journey into the future where technology has gone horrifically wrong.”
Written by John Cabrera and Cosimo de Tommaso and directed by Stewart Hendler (Sorority Row), the series is set in 2019, when 33 percent of the world’s population uses an implanted computer system called H+ that permits a person’s mind and nervous system to be connected to the Internet 24 hours a day. But that same year, a mysterious computer virus is released, killing millions of people within seconds and leading to radical changes to society.
Shooting is expected to begin on H+ by the end of the year.
Aim High, from McG (Supernatural, Chuck), centers on Nick Green, a young man with a double life: By day he’s a high-school sophomore; by night he’s one of the U.S. government’s 64 highly trained teen operatives.
The series is written by Heath Corson (Living with Abandon, Scary Godmother) and Richie Keen (Living with Abandon) and directed by Thor Freudenthal (Hotel for Dogs, Diary of a Wimpy Kid). Shooting begins in October in Los Angeles.
Warner Bros. Digital Distribution and Dolphin will work with cable, satellite, broadband and mobile clients for placement and promotional support for the two series.
