New Bryan Singer web series 'H+' coming soon

Director Bryan Singer (maybe most famous for the first two X-Men movies. Otherwise known as 'the good ones') has a brand new web only sic-fi series called H+ The Digital Series on the way for later this Summer.

The show premiers on August 8th on YouTube and focuses on a future Earth where the human race is hard wired into the internet... which honestly doesn't sound like much of a stretch at this point.
A futuristic online series, where the human race is hardwired to the Internet, is coming this summer.  From producer Bryan Singer ("The Usual Suspects” / "X-Men: First Class"), the highly anticipated live-action web series “H+ The Digital Series” will make its debut August 8 on YouTube.  Directed by Stewart Hendler (“Sorority Row”), and starring an acclaimed international cast that includes Alexis Denisof (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), Amir Arison (“Law & Order:SVU) and David Clayton Rogers (“Jane By Design”), “H+ The Digital Series” takes viewers on an episodic, apocalyptic journey where technology has gone horrifically wrong.
Post apocalyptic you ask? Yep. After most of the human population of the world adopts the HPlus chip (which bridges your own mind to the 'net), a virus is released that instantly kills off one third of the population. Of the world. Yeah, that's a big number.

So H+ sounds like it's got quite a bit going for it, but why go YouTube?

Bryan Singer:
“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,” said Bryan Singer. “‘H+ The Digital Series’ on YouTube provides us with a strong two-way dialogue with our fans, creating a deeper and ongoing connection.”
So there you have it. If you just can't wait till 8/8 and you happen to be heading to Comic Con International, make sure you stop by the YouTube Comic Con Event on Friday the 13th. Starting at 7:30pm, there'll be a special screening of the show followed up by a Q&A with some of the stars and creators.
