Zune Getting Exclusive Animated Series

city council Zune Getting Exclusive Animated Series

Zune has been working towards getting exclusive TV-like content for the marketplace for a few months now and a few days ago a press release announced the first of these series: a animated series called City Council 3050 AD. The series will be produced by the Seattle-based company Worktank and the show will only be available on the Zune.

“City Council 3050 AD,” an original comedy conceived by Worktank, is based on local government C-SPAN channels that broadcast the mundane proceedings of city business. The show, set in the future, uses this dry backdrop to offer humor and absurdity, taking modern local and national political issues and recasting them in the future.

If Microsoft can get more of this going for their Zune, that might be a reason for people to seriously consider the device as a media device. There’s also the Zune HD rumours going around and if they turn out to be true it’s another sign that the Zune is far from dead. Hit the link below for a video preview of City Council 3050 AD.
