Microsoft has reportedly inked a deal with Hollywood producer Peter Safran to produce entertainment content for Xbox Live.
Safran’s been tapped to produce genre-specific short episodes (less than 10 minutes) that appeal to 14- to 34-year old males. His client list includes Sean Combs, Nia Vardalos, and filmmakers Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer. I know — I’m excited too!
Look for the new content later this year, around fall. Microsoft’s expected to ink similar deals with other content producers as well.
