Zune owners, you've got another ally in the war against boredom. Worktank, an advertising agency, has started production on a new animated comedy series designed as downloadable content for the Zune media player. The show is called 'City Council 3050', and it is supposed to be based on a futuristic local government.

The shows look will be based on local C-SPAN city council meetings, and it will feature a cast of characters that run the gamut from mundane busybodies to robots to little green aliens. 'City Council' is being billed as a satire of government at all levels, and we can expect to see plenty of thinly veiled allusions to current political events throughout the series.

'City Council 3050' isn't the only show being developed for the Zune Marketplace. Zune has a slew of other shows in development, that they eventually plan to make available for free to all Zune owners. 'City Council' itself will first air near the end of May, at a screening in Seattle. For more information you can check out for details.

I'm glad to see Zune looking for a creative way to carve a bigger niche for themselves in the industry. Offering unique and high-quality media content for customers should be a fantastic way to get people to choose a Zune over an iPod. As portable media devices become ever more ubiquitous, I think we'll see a lot more companies try to do the same thing.
