Report: Microsoft to boost Xbox TV lineup with street soccer series

October 16, 2013

Xbox Entertainment Studios launches first TV series based on street soccer

After snagging CBS exec Nancy Tellem and launching a Halo-based TV series with Steven Spielberg, Microsoft’s Xbox Entertainment Studios appears to be tackling a whole new genre. According to Deadline Hollywood, the fledgling TV division will launch its first reality-TV series for Xbox Live based on street soccer called Every Street United. Eight 30-minute episodes will be produced featuring undiscovered talent playing four-on-four soccer across eight different countries. The idea is to have the top eight compete in a climactic final match during the World Cup, though final details are still up in the air. The show will reportedly target Xbox’s sports-crazy demographic, though the choice seems a bold move for Microsoft — which is clearly thinking outside the US box.
