According to a recent report by Bllomberg, Microsoft is working on six different original TV shows for their Xbox One console.
The shows will apparently include a Sarah Silverman sketch show, a Seth Green stop animation show, a Halo TV series being produced by Steven Speilberg, a Soccer show called Every Street United and more.
Microsoft is pushing ahead with the original shows even as new Chief Executive Officer Satya Nadella has yet to fully articulate his plans for the company’s consumer business. The Redmond, Washington-based software maker last month added an activist investor from ValueAct Holdings LP to its board who wants the company to shift its focus away from expensive consumer initiatives. The two top executives who began the programming effort — former Xbox chief Don Mattrick and CEO Steve Ballmer — are also gone.
Microsoft is apparently going to use these new six TV shows in an attempt to get people to purchase their Xbox One console.
