Xbox announces T. V. series

Microsoft is getting on the Netflix grind. That’s right, they’re stepping in to the realm of television. The company has announced what they’re calling “Xbox Originals.”

The dozen original T.V. series includes a little bit of everything; all the way from documentaries to sci-fi flicks. Xbox says if you want to take a look, you better pick up a gaming console. That’s because the series is exclusive to Xbox and Microsoft.

Steven Spielberg and Ridley Scott are at the forefront of this move. They are heavily involved in two separate series that are based on the popular “Halo” video-game franchise. A sci-fi drama called “Humans,” and a documentary series titled “Signal to Noise” will also be rolling out.

This announcement comes after Yahoo announced Monday that it will also be bringing its own shows to T.V. They will kick of their move into the world of television with 2 comedies.
