H+ The Digital Series — FastForward Radio

By | August 1, 2012

Phil and Stephen  welcome the creators of a new web series from Warner Premiere: H+ the Digital Series. Joining the discussion will be director Stewart Hendler (director, “Sorority Row” and “Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn”), writer/creator John Cabrera (actor, “Gilmore Girls”) and producer Jason Taylor (associate producer, “Jack the Giant Killer”).

H+ The Digital Series takes viewers on an apocalyptic journey into the future where consumers are rapidly installing a chip called “HPlus” into their nervous systems that allows them to access the Internet 24 hours a day – by just thinking it. When a virus is released into the system, one third of the human population is wiped out instantly.  The series deals with the massive political and human changes that take place, the fight for survival, and the mystery to discover who is behind this atrocity.
Is such a scenario possible? Tune in and find out!
“H+ The Digital Series” comes from producer Bryan Singer (“The Usual Suspects,” “X-Men,” “Superman Returns”) and Jason Taylor (“uwantme2killhim?”)
