A few weeks ago we reported that Bryan Singer was due to release the first parts of the web series he’s produced, H+, on August 8th. Well now episodes 1 & 2 are here, and you can watch them above and below.
The 48-part sci-fi show takes viewers on an episodic, apocalyptic journey into the future where consumers are rapidly installing a chip called H+ into their nervous systems that allows them to access the Internet 24 hours a day – by just thinking it. One day, a virus is released – causing a third of the world’s population to die instantly. The series deals with the massive political and human changes that take place, the fight for survival and the mystery to discover who is behind this atrocity.
The series is directed by Stewart Hendler (Sorority Row), and stars an acclaimed international cast that includes Alexis Denisof (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Amir Arison (Law & Order: SVU) and David Clayton Rogers (Jane By Design). Bryan Singer comments, “Our first venture into the digital space gives us the freedom to engage fans with new content that is immersive, interactive and is tailored to be enjoyed online, H+ The Digital Series on YouTube provides us with a strong two-way dialogue with our fans, creating a deeper and ongoing connection.”
The first two parts are definitely intriguing, and suggest this is a series that might be worth sticking with. You can subscribe to H+ via its Youtube channel.
