If you missed my announcement, I'll be hosting the pre & post shows for Alpha's new LIVE scripted sci-fi series, Orbital Redux! Premiere episode tonight! Pre show @ 5:45pm PT. Tune in at http://YouTube.com/Nerdist  to see this this episode for FREE!!! #ObritalRedux @JoinTeamAlpha pic.twitter.com/a1AfQIsPpf




I only just heard of the show, but an article in Variety gives a few more details:

“Orbital Redux” follows Yuri Lowenthal’s Zachery “Max” Levodolinksy, who is described as “a former astronaut navigating life after NASA runs out of funding, removing all the thrilling, heroic jobs.” The story picks up when Max is tasked with teaching a new pilot (Yasmine Al-Bustami) the ropes of the space program. Though initially they are at odds, as the new hire is there to replace Max, the pair must later combine forces for survival when a redux fails.

Additionally, the show allows viewers to participate and interact with the actors:

In addition to watching the astronauts navigate their apocalyptic circumstances, viewers can participate via the show’s live formula, which allows them to vote on potential plot twists, like characters’ decisions and hurtles, for the actors to then perform in real time.

“When it comes to entertainment, you don’t get to unleash a first very often,” said writer-director Steven Calcote of Butcher Bird Studios. “We’re not just thrusting viewers into the middle of a cinematic spaceship adventure series, we’re streaming it live. That means live performances, live special effects, live cinematography, live sci-fi. It’s a high-wire act that our audience won’t experience anywhere else.”

Producer Lillian Diaz-Przybyl added, “This is a project that ties together the latest, most dynamic live digital experiences: multiple cameras on an immersive spaceship set, a live musical score, and audience participation and interactivity. But in order to achieve that, we also harken back to time-tested traditions of early television and the ancient art of live theatrical performance. The very core of ‘Orbital Redux’ is in how we are reaching for an exciting new future while being solidly grounded in the reality and teachings of the past.”



So, if you're a subscriber to Alpha - you can view the replay of the program there, but tonight (at least) you can view it for free and LIVE, on the Nerdist Youtube Channel!
