A new series from Warner Bros, which they're calling a "social series," will take it's music and pictures from fans' Facebook pages and use them in the show.
Sounds kinda gimmicky.
The show is being brought to us by director McG, who did the Charlie's Angels movies and the not-so-great Terminator Salvation.
Here's what the show is about:
"Aim High," which will debut on October 18 and run for six episodes, stars Jackson Rathbone of "Twilight" fame as a high school student turned government operative named Nick Green who goes on weekly, top-secret adventures.
While Green's tale will feature action — McG's other film directing credits include "Terminator Salvation" and he was executive producer on TV's "Nikita" — and Rathbone is a key draw, the real star is not the actor. It is you.
At least there's a Twilight guy in it, right?
Here's what McG has to say personally:
"The show becomes personal," McG told Reuters. "Music that the characters are listening to comes from your playlist, pictures on the walls, TV screens and picture frames inside the show are from your profile."
It uses a computer program to do this:
As Nick performs his spy duties in his high school's hallway, he may pass a poster for a class president candidate and the picture on it is you. Or, the end credits might have photos of your friends when listing Nick's spy accomplices.
So really, it only tailors it to you while you're watching? Is that what we're understanding here?
Wouldn't it be cooler to have it be random and have the entire audience watching see the lucky fan?
Who knows. This sounded kinda cool at first, now it just seems like another way to invade privacy!
Thanks, Zuck and McG!
