Drama & Genre (Mystery), Other Gems (TV Show Extensions)
[ 6:04 - from YouTube ]
Hereâ€™s a great web series thatâ€™s a sign of TV to come. As CBS ramps up for its April 9th launch of murder mystery â€œHarperâ€™s Island,â€ the network has unveiled a parallel web series, â€œHarperâ€™s Globe,â€ which serves as a prequel, a story extension, and a â€œsocial showâ€ involving viewers. â€œGlobeâ€ revolves around a young woman who takes a job as online community manager at the islandâ€™s local paper (well done), and while digitizing the archives stumbles upon a series of gruesome murders. Clues (and urls) are embedded in the videos (and possibly the digitized archives). Created with the guys behind the hit web series "Lonely Girl" and "KateModern".
