Microsoft announced a few days ago that former CBS executive Nancy Tellem would be appointed entertainment and digital media president, and now more information emerges on her future role within the Redmond-based software giant.
Tellem will help Microsoft deliver the next iteration of television, as she said in an interview
for the Los Angeles Times, but she didn’t provide more information on exactly how they plan to do that.
However, it is rumored that the former CBS entertainment president will develop a whole new series available exclusively through Microsoft’s Xbox platform.
“What's so exciting about this opportunity is we're looking at the next iteration of television,” Tellem was quoted as saying by the aforementioned source. "We're starting from scratch and we'll be looking at linear and interactive content, both longer-form, like television, and shorter form.”
Microsoft is yet to comment on how it sees the “next iteration of television,” but more information is very likely to emerge as soon as Tellem starts working on her new projects.
