Samsung developing VR-only TV series

Pilot episodes for six original series have launched on Gear VR

Samsung has debuted six pilot episodes for new TV series that are only available via its virtual reality service, Gear VR.

The company offered a grant to six independent film makers to create original VR episodes. The filmmakers were also offered the use of Samsung’s 360 Round camera, although only one used it.

The initiative, dubbed Pilot Season, is aimed at “infusing exclusive original episodic Virtual Reality content into the Samsung VR Video service.”

There are no details as to whether Samsung will look to develop all six episodes into full series.
