SAN MATEO, Calif., Nov. 30, 2017
Jaunt, the industry leader in immersive VR experiences, is bringing a total of seven new VR experiences created by the company exclusively to the Hulu VR app. The deal includes the acclaimed five-part scripted VR series INVISIBLE, as well as two episodes from the action and adventure series HOME TURF. The titles are now available to stream through the Hulu VR app include:
INVISIBLE is a five-part series that follows an old New York family, the Ashlands, whose tentacles reach into the largest corporations and governments in the world. Although they control a large portion of the world’s economy, they exist in relative ambiguity. The Ashlands move without being seen and somehow without being known. That’s because select family members have the power to make themselves invisible. INVISIBLE was created by a partnership between Condé Nast Entertainment (CNÉ), Jaunt, Samsung Electronics America, Inc., and the 30 Ninjas team of Director Doug Liman (BOURNE IDENTITY, EDGE OF TOMORROW) and Producer Julina Tatlock, along with Oscar-nominated Screenwriter Melisa Wallack (DALLAS BUYERS CLUB).
HOME TURF is a collaboration with Camp 4 Collective. The series takes users on iconic adventures all over the world including Iceland and Utah. In addition to beautiful landscapes, the series follows famous figures including world-renowned slackliner Andy Lewis.
The new deal gives consumers access to even more high-quality and award-winning immersive content across all major devices where the Hulu VR app can be streamed.
