Paramount Digital Ent. and European production and distribution company Gaumont will develop SECTION 8, an interactive web series exclusively distributed in the U.S. by MySpace.
Endemol will handle worldwide distribution, product integration and brand partnerships.
Following the highly successful digital release of JACKASS 2.5, the first studio-backed feature film to be offered online, comes SECTION 8, an interactive short-form serial thriller set to introduce online audiences to an online entertainment experience that engages them in character and plot development never-before-seen on the web.
Featuring an ill-fated cast of characters, the supernatural thriller will take audiences through a spine-tingling journey as personal dramas are revealed. Throughout the short-form series, each character will face a moment of jeopardy, leaving only one survivor. In a unique new media twist, audiences are invited to guess the solution to the cryptic back-story using customized interactive experiences situated in and around the series. When collected together, the series will be redistributed as a full-length feature.
In addition to finding character descriptions, episode discussions and behind-the-scenes content, users will be able to embed each episode on their MySpace profile pages.
