Discovery and Google have teamed up to produce a new VR video series called Discovery TRVLR. The first six episodes of the 38-episode series are expected to launch Friday, Nov. 3.
There will be seven chapters in the series, one for each continent, taking viewers on various experiences with locals, including rituals, traditions and adventures. Each continent will have 6 episodes, except Antarctica, which will feature two.
The series has an all-star production team behind it, including Emmy Award-winning Sashka Unseld (creative director of the now-defunct Oculus Story Studio) as its creative producer, 36 episodes directed by Addison O’Dea and produced by Here Be Dragons, and the Antarctica episodes directed by Barry Pousman and produced by Yes Please Thank You.
Discovery TRVLR will be available on YouTube, DiscoveryVR.com and the Dicovery VR app. You’ll also be able to watch on Rift and Vive with Opera’s new webVR-enabled browser and on Gear VR with Samsung Internet.
