Microsoft has announced a partnership with the Safran Digital Group that will bring original content to gamers via Xbox Live.
SDG added that “full details of film-makers, talent and specific type of content will be disclosed at a later date,” but other reports have disclosed that “the first batch of content will be six scripted shows running at under 10 minutes, and focusing on specific genres such as horror and comedy.”
The group was established and run by Peter Safran, a producer and agent who produced “Meet the Spartans” and “Over Her Dead Body” and represented actors and film makers such as Sean “P. Diddy” Combs, David Schwimmer, Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer.
The shorts will be the first ever original content created for the Xbox Live Video Marketplace.
