Xbox Unveils Its First TV Development Slate, Including a Halo Series

Xbox is ready to be a major player in TV programming. Looking to expand beyond gamers, and inspired by the success of streaming services like Netflix, Microsoft's newly formed Xbox Entertainment Studios is announcing the first original series for its device at a Monday presentation to advertisers.

The company has ordered a bunch of projects to premiere in the next two years, including two different takes on the Halo game franchise. The first project, a digital feature to be released later this year, comes from Ridley Scott's Scott Free Productions and director Sergio Mimica-Gezzan (Battlestar Galactica), and will be streamed on a chapter-by-chapter basis. A live-action Halo TV series from Steven Spielberg and his Amblin TV label is also in the works.

With Cable and Digital Entering the Fray, Pilot Season Hits a Casting Crunch

Imagine a world in which the NFL, the NBA and Major League Baseball all decided to move their seasons to the same time of year. It would be chaos, for fans and the professional sports business alike. And yet, in television, that's essentially what happens during pilot season.

The field has always been crowded, but this spring, several cable networks and online retailer-turned-programmer Amazon are also developing new shows that they hope will go to series (cable networks typically produce pilots throughout the year, usually avoiding the spring).
