Director of The Usual Suspects and X-Men, Bryan Singer, is acting as producer behind a futuristic live-action web series, H + The Digital Series, which will debut on August 9 on YouTube.

Directed by Stewart Hendler (Sorority Row), the series is set in a world where the human race is hardwired to the Internet. Consumers are rapidly installing a chip called H+ into their nervous systems that allows them to access the Internet 24 hours a day - just by thinking about it. But when a virus is released - causing a third of the world's population to die instantly - the fight for survival and the search for who is responsible is on.

The series has recruited an acclaimed international cast that includes Alexis Denisof (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Hannah Simone (New Girl) and Amir Arison (Law & Order: SVU).

Fans can already subscribe to the H + The Digital Series channel on YouTube where they will have access to exclusive new content in the lead-up to the series' premiere. 

"Our first venture into the digital space gives us the freedom to engage fans with new content that is immersive, interactive and is tailored to be enjoyed online," Bryan Singer said of the venture. "H+ The Digital Series on YouTube provides us with a strong two-way dialogue with our fans, creating a deeper and ongoing connection."
