An executive who’s a familiar name in the TV trade is giving a big boost to virtual reality programming with a new VR series moving closer to reality.
Claire Atkinson reports in The New York Post that Dawn Ostroff, who’s now entertainment president at Conde Nast, has a number of projects in the hopper, including “Invisible,” which the report says is one of the first narrative VR series.
Ostroff is the former president of entertainment at the CW and former executive VP at Lifetime. She oversaw a prime-time slate at the CW that included “The Vampire Diaries,” “Gossip Girl,” “One Tree Hill,” “America’s Next Top Model,” “90210,” “Supernatural” and “Smallville.”
Atkinson reports that Ostroff is working with advertisers on “Invisible,” which is being directed by “Bourne Identity’s” Doug Liman.
“The series is made with partners Jaunt and Samsung, and will be out in September on the Samsung VR platform,” Atkinson reports.
