Yet another web series is coming from a famous filmmaker. This time the project is H+, produced by Bryan Singer and featuring a future-set storyline “where the human race is hardwired to the Internet,” at least before some manner of technological apocalypse hits, making the world look like it is in the middle of cosplaying the climax of Stephen King’s The Stand.
The first trailer for H+ has been released, and it looks at first a lot like an infomercial for the new information technology, but then it turns into a more narrative-oriented trailer that suggests a future that is both promising and very frightening. This is no small-budget, minor-scale web series. It looks like it has big ambitions, and while some of the story beats are relatively familiar, there is promise here, too.
H+ premieres on August 8, on YouTube. Directed by Stewart Hendler (Sorority Row), the show stars Alexis Denisof (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Amir Arison (Law & Order: SVU), and David Clayton Rogers (Jane By Design).
A groundbreaking new series by acclaimed producer Bryan Singer, H+: The Digital Series takes viewers on a journey into an apocalyptic future where technology has begun to spiral out of control… a future where the world’s population has retired its cell phones and laptops in favor of stunning new device by Hplus Nano Teoranta, an innovative technology company that has found a way to connect the Internet to the human mind 24 hours a day.
