“Microsoft has a slew of original programming set to hit the Xbox, kicking off in June. The original content includes 12 projects, with six “committed” and six in development, covering a range of genres including documentary, sci-fi, concert and comedy. Included in the lineup is a Halo digital feature produced by Ridley Scott and directed by a veteran who ran episodes of Battlestar Galactica and Heroes, which is separate from the Steven Spielberg-produced Halo live-action TV series.” Read more at Techcrunch.com

The “Halo Master Chief Collection” is exclusive to the Xbox platform and includes the first live action series, “Halo: Nightfall,” produced by Ridley Scott premiering on Nov. 11th, 2014. Sergio Mimica-Gezzan (“Battlestar Galactica”) is directing the series that introduces a key new character in “Halo 5: Guardians.”
