NEW YORK, June 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SingularDTV (S-DTV), the recently launched first-of-its-kind blockchain entertainment studio, announces production of its first original television series: Singular. Singular is an epic sci-fi adventure about the human race's journey into a theoretical technological Singularity.
Evotion Media Producer Kim Jackson (Blue Caprice, Inside Man, Munich) has been appointed Chief Creative Officer of Singular and will lead Season 1 into production on October 3, 2016. Principal photography will commence in New York City, Puerto Rico and Panama. The television series will serve as the use case around which S-DTV builds out its rights management platform.
Taking place between the years 2021 – 2045, Singular follows an international cast of unlikely characters as decentralization scales and artificial intelligence becomes conscious, ultimately leading the world into a technological Singularity - a theoretical advancement in technology that creates a human/machine super intelligence.
Zach LeBeau, CEO of S-DTV, noted, "Singular is an international television series, which will be produced and distributed worldwide through the S-DTV portal. It's a multi-lingual series, featuring a cast from the United States, Russia, China, and several other countries. Singular strives to bring cultures closer together through great science fiction that inspires the imagination. The Singular multiverse depicts a positive future of possibilities and discovery."
Futurist Ray Kurzweil, known for popularizing the term "technological Singularity", describes it as an exponential increase in the advancement of various technologies. These technologies transform people as they augment their minds and bodies with genetic alterations, nanotechnology and artificial intelligence, leading to a human/machine intelligence of infinite power that radiates outward from the planet until it saturates the Universe.
