Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012

If you guys want something to argue over, figure this one out: Anomaly.

It will be available in October as a 370-page book and, simultaneously, a stand-alone tablet app featuring voice work by some of the leading actors in science fiction and gaming. In October, consumers will also be able to download a free Anomaly app for iPad, iPod and Android devices equipped with Ultra Augmented Reality technology featuring more than 50 3D models. As part of the project’s multi-platform strategy producer Joe Roth is developing Anomaly for a feature film.
So are the voice actors going to narrate an animated series based on the book plotline for the tablet app? I got a headache just writing that. Why don't they just choose ONE medium and see if the story is any damn good in that medium, first, and then start spinning stuff off as seems appropriate?

Especially since it boasts this amazingly unique premise:

Anomaly is set in the year 2717, when most humans live in off-world colonies, and a single corporation, The Conglomerate, routinely conquers other planets to steal their resources. The story follows a group of explorers who embark on a diplomatic mission to a mysterious planet, only to find themselves embroiled in a global conflict between its exotic inhabitants. Before long, their mission turns deadly.
