Xbox Entertainment Studios and Channel 4 announce sci-fi show Humans

Everyone that owns a media streaming network is rushing to keep up with Amazon, Netflix, and YouTube with the original content that those sites produce grabbing huge numbers of visitors. While Google is having a hard time making money of YouTube, Netflix and Amazon are doing surprisingly well with their subscription models.

Xbox Entertainment Studios and the UK TV network Channel 4 have announced that they have partners on a new original sci-fi drama. The show will air in the UK on Channel 4 and will share a "premiere window" on the Xbox for North America.

It's unclear right now if only the premier of the show will be aired on the Xbox or if all episodes will. The show is called Humans and is based on a show called Real Humans. The premise is that a family buys a used robotic servant called a Synth. The catch is that the Synth they purchase has some secrets.

"'Humans' not only questions personal relationships, we loved how this sci-fi show toys with reality and our connection to technology," said Xbox Entertainment Studios President Nancy Tellem. She added, "This deal with Channel 4 and Kudos underscores Xbox Entertainment Studios' commitment to programming premium TV series with global partners and creating engaging interactive experiences."

Casting for the show will being in May with production starting later this summer.

"Exploring themes of love, discrimination and integration, this thrilling, beautifully written series allows us to get under the skin of what it means to be human in the most compelling way," said Jane Featherstone, Executive Producer for Kudos. "The bold, innovative storylines and subject matter lend themselves perfectly to this pioneering collaboration with Channel 4 and Xbox."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
