Didn't it originally start as a digital series when they were first discussing it?
Yes. Then they decided to do it as a backdoor pilot for TV, and now they say they're going back to producing it as a digital series again (although they've also announced that they will show the 90-minute movie on TV, so who knows what the plan is).
That is exactly the plan. Air the pilot on TV as a movie to make back more of the production costs. Then produce a digital series on the cheap given the lower revenue stream of online shows.
