Microsoft has today announced a new exclusive documentary series to air on the Xbox in 2014, centring around the rise and fall of Atari and the videogames industry in the early 80s.
Xbox will produce the series with two-time Academy Award® winning producer Simon Chinn (Searching for Sugar Man and Man on Wire) and Emmy winning producer Jonathan Chinn (FX’s 30 Days and PBS’s American High) through their new multi-platform media company, Lightbox.
“Our collaboration with Xbox offers an unparalleled opportunity to make a unique series of films around the extraordinary events and characters that have given rise to the digital age,” said Simon Chinn via press release.

“Our goal is to produce a series of compelling and entertaining docs which will deploy all the narrative techniques of Simon's and my previous work. It's particularly exciting to be partnering with filmmakers like Zak Penn who come to this process from other filmmaking disciplines and who will bring their own distinctive creative vision to this,” added Jonathan Chinn.

“Jonathan and Simon Chinn are the perfect team to spearhead this series for Xbox. They are consummate story tellers and they plan to match their creative sensibility with the best talent in the industry,” commented Nancy Tellem, president, Xbox Entertainment Studios via the same press release.

“These stories will expose how the digital revolution created a global democracy of information, entertainment and commerce, and how it impacts our lives every day.”

The first episode off the rank will feature the excavation of the burial site of thousands of E.T. The Extra Terrestrial game cartridges after a hugely negative amount of feedback upon the game's initial release. The stuff of legends, really. The series begins shooting in January and will air throughout 2014, exclusively on Xbox Live.

I wonder if the XBox will make a significant difference?
