London: Facebook has now launched a new app that will turn its users’ lives into a TV show by allowing them to insert their photos and updates into a special action series created for the web.
“Two and a Half Men” and “Gossip Girl” makers Warner Bros will launch the social-networking’s site first-ever action series called ‘Aim High’ in October, the Telegraph reports.
The plot will revolve around a high school student, played by Jackson Rathbone, a young actor best known for his role in the Twilight vampire films, who is leading a double life as a US spy.
The web show would allow Facebook users to become participants in the show through using an application on Aim High’s Facebook page.
Users can be integrated into the show, such as seeing their face on a poster or their name written on a wall.
“The show becomes personal. Music that the characters are listening to comes from your playlist, pictures on the walls, TV screens and picture frames inside the show are from your profile,” the paper quoted director McG, as saying.
The show`s producers hope this unique personalised mode will draw a young audience that spends a lot of time on Facebook.
“You`re tapping into why Facebook is so popular, which is the experience of creating your own personal profile,” said Thomas Gewecke of Warner Bros Digital Distribution.
