Xbox Originals Programming Launches in June With Bonnaroo App
By Charles Webb on April 28, 2014
This morning, Microsoft rolled out more details about its Xbox Originals program, which sees the publisher joining Amazon and Netflix in creating its own lineup of digital programming. And yes, Halo is on the way.
Specifically, we’re talking about the Ridley Scott-produced feature Armi wrote up earlier this month. However, that will probably be beaten to the screen by the Steven Spielberg-produced TV series based on the sci-fi shooter.
In the near future, though, Microsoft hopes you’ll come for their unscripted programming, including their Bonnaroo coverage the weekend of June 13th. You’ll have to use a standalone app to access the Bonnaroo content, which will include performances from the three-day festival. June also sees the premiere of Every Street United, an eight-episode unscripted drama following several famous soccer players. The six-part documentary series rounds out the programming currently coming to Xbox Originals in 2014.
However, going forward, Micrsoft has some interesting things on the way including the sci-fi drama Humans, an adaptation of Warren Ellis’ novel Gun Machine, the stop-motion series Extraordinary Believers, the supernatural Western Deadlands, and the post-apocalyptic dramaWinterworld.
