A new storytelling experience that lets viewers choose their own path through the story has been unveiled by HBO and filmmaker Steven Soderbergh.
“Mosaic,” developed for HBO by Soderbergh and Casey Silver, in conjunction with writer Ed Solomon, will be available as a free download in November. It will be followed by a six-part limited series that will air on HBO in January 2018.
Sharon Stone stars, along with Garrett Hedlund, Frederick Weller, Beau Bridges, Paul Reubens, Jennifer Ferrin, Devin Ratray, Michael Cerveris, James Ransone, Jeremy Bobb and Maya Kazan.
“Three years in the making, the Mosaic app allows viewers to choose what point-of-view from which to follow the story and to, in effect, build their own experience from the material Soderbergh and Solomon created,” HBO announced. “The choices one makes build upon one another, enabling multiple tellings of the story from different perspectives and, sometimes, with different conclusions. Viewers will be able to see how their own versions of the story on the app ultimately compare to Soderbergh’s six-part linear narrative in January.”
