A software giant has reportedly taken steps toward getting into scripted television, according to Deadline.com. Microsoft has tapped a headhunter to find an executive to hire as head of scripted, according to the story.

The move comes as the tech company has been looking at scripted TV for the XBox, its video-game console, the story reports.

It’s not the first time Microsoft has invested in an original series, as the company’s Zune service partnered with MEAN Magazine to create the digital comedy series "Cinemash" several years ago, the piece points out.
