NEW YORK (Real Life)
Pierce Portocarrero, the man behind the award winning machinima series “Game Over” has landed a job at Virtual NBC.
Portocarrero created Game Over in the online fantasy world Second Life. It didn’t take long for some execs at NBC to hire Portocarrero. After watching his seven minute film they gave him the chance to direct the pilot for a nine episode comedy series which is also set to be taking place within the confines of Second Life.
The plot for the new series is based upon a family which has been seperated geographically because the kids are off at different universities. The only time that the family begins to enjoy together is within second life.
The title of the new series is yet to be determined. And the new machinima based series which has been likened to a second life version of the simpsons is set to premiere within the confines of second life.
