Microsoft's Xbox TV leader hints Halo TV series will have interactive features

As part of its Xbox One reveal in May, Microsoft announced it was developing a live action Halo television series with Steven Spielberg as one of its executive producers. Microsoft has been quiet about the TV show since that first reveal but this week Nancy Tellem, president of Xbox Entertainment Studios, gave a couple of more hints about the Halo TV show and Microsoft's plans for developing original TV series in general.

CNN Money reports that Tellem, while speaking at the Brainstorm Tech conference, said that the show would have some kind of interactive elements, stating, "Unlike developing a show and adding interactivity after the fact, we are going to start from the beginning." Unfortunately, details on how that interactivity will manifest itself were not revealed.

Tellem also said that beyond the Halo TV series, the Xbox Entertainment Studios team have a number of other shows in development. She said that the company was "close" to revealing some of their other TV series. She hinted that the company is considering many different types of shows, from news to reality shows to live events. In April, rumors hint the Internet that Microsoft was in early discussions to launch a possible revival of the cult hit "Heroes" TV series.
