Steven Spielberg is set to executive produce the scripted "Halo" series, based on the multibillion-dollar game franchise that centers on a fight for humankind against an alliance of aliens. The series will include exclusive interactive Xbox One content created in partnership with 343 Industries and Xbox Entertainment Studios.
For Microsoft, the transition to a full home entertainment system and the development of an original series around the game comes as digital platforms including Netflix and Amazon are creating original scripted content. Other non-gaming additions include voice search for TV, music and movies.
