Bryan Singer has debuted the trailer for “H+,” a new web series that is essentially post-apocalyptic cyberpunk in nature. In a rather obvious nod to Neal Stephenson’s snow crash virus in the novel “Snow Crash,” writers John Cabrera and Cosimo De Tommaso tell the story of how a brain-Internet interface, Hplus Nano Teoranta, which changes how humans interact with the Internet, is corrupted by a virus, wiping out a significant portion of the world population.
It’s clearly some smart science fiction with cyberpunk DNA, but whether it will work well in the web series format is hard to say. Best of luck to Singer, Cabrera and De Tommasso though—we need more intelligent science fiction.
Watch the trailer below.
