Bryan Singer, McG Produce Digital Shorts for Warner Premiere

ALT TEXTBryan Singer and McG are looking at a little smaller screen than usual — the computer monitor.

The two directors — known for their extravagant action and superhero movies — are each producing their own multi-platform series, and they’re bringing some directing talent with them: Thor Freudenthal (Diary of a Wimpy Kid) and Stewart Hendler (Sorority Row). If the digital shows go over well, they could spawn spin-offs, TV shows, or even full-length movies.

Singer is producing H+. Although it sounds like it’s about the life of a positively charged hydrogen molecule, the series is a bit more negative (see what I did there?). The studio release describes it as an “apocalyptic journey into the future where technology has gone horrifically wrong. In 2019, 33% of the world’s population uses a radical new piece of technology — an implemented computer system called H +. This allows a person’s mind and nervous system to be connected to the Internet 24 hours a day.” And you watch this on the internet. Holy crap.

McG is responsible for Aim High, which definitely sounds like a McG-ish-style project. It’s about a teenager who has every high school kid’s dream — doubling as a government assassin at night. And of course, he deals with the typical high school problems: girls, bullies, and Russian spies.

There’s no doubt that both shows sound interesting. But, can they pull this off? I mean, online spin-offs from TV shows or movies is understandable (and has been done numerous times), but the other way around? I just don’t know if I see it actually happening. Regardless, with Singer and McG involved, there will definitely be some sizable explosions.
