Were hoping we will be able to put something up in the first quarter, at minimum second quarter, said Tellem, president of entertainment and digital for Microsoft, at Varietys Dealmakers Breakfast at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles. The shows will be available on the Xbox 360 and Xbox One through Xbox Live.
Im incredibly ambitious and impatient, said Tellem, who took the job to produce original content for the Xbox platform in 2012. Because of that, the time its taken to develop the first slate of series, including a high-profile project based around Halo, with Steven Spielberg producing, has been slower, but reflecting on what weve done and what lies ahead, its been pretty good.
Tellem was attracted to joining Microsoft after spending years at CBS and the CW, closely monitoring how content was changing websites and how millennials interact with it. I was always looking for the next thing, she says. Technology and the transition that was taking place was incredibly interesting to me. Its very exciting for me to be in this position right now and see how the business model evolves and how content evolves.
