BBC children's drama to be released online
A new British teen thriller will make its debut next month online instead of on television, as its producers follow their young audience who are switching off the set and focusing their attentions on the internet. The Guardian reports.
The Po5t series throws together a group of teenagers when their lives are put in peril.
The first of six planned eight minute episodes of Po5t will appear next month and the producers are hoping to work with its teen audience to "tweak" future episodes before they come out so they can take in viewers' suggestions of how the suspense plot should evolve. Audience participation is expected to play an even greater role in the second series.
