Microsoft NewFront: April 28, 2014

Microsoft unveiled its soon-to-debut slate at its NewFront event at New York’s Moynihan Station with performances from Lake Street Dive and Chris Robinson to showcase the Bonnaroo music festival in June that will live stream on the console. XBox Entertainment Studios’ Nancy Tellem (President) and Jordan Levin (EVP) introduced a raft of new programming. Quoting Charles Mingus, Tellem said she wants to “make the complicated simple” and integrate technology into storytelling. Toward that end, shows include:

  • Greenlit projects: Halo, the television series directed and produced by Steven Spielberg, FIFA World Cup show Every Street United, live-streams of performances at Bonnaroo, Signal to Noise tech documentary series with the first called Atari: Game Over, comedy sci-fi series Humans.
  • Projects in development: Scripted role-playing series Deadlands, live-action animated series from Robot Chicken creators called Extraordinary Believers, reality series called Fearless, a detective thriller called Gun Machine, comedy variety show Untilted JASH Comedy/Variety Half Hour and live action series based on a graphic novel titled Winterworld. Also on tap is an interactive drama called Possibilia, an interactive film from the sensitive directing duo DANIELS in which viewers help steer the story.
