News Summary: Blueprint for digital series?

THE TENSIONS: Increasingly, Internet-based series aspire to television-level quality, while trying to get by on Web-sized budgets. That has mainly meant that most Web series look shoddy.

CHALLENGING THE NORM: “H+,” a digital series produced by Bryan Singer, is an ambitious, 48-part show with clear intentions of raising the bar on digital series and bringing a higher standard of production value to the Web.

HOW IT DOES IT: The show stretches every dollar of its budget. One production choice, for instance, was decamping to Santiago, Chile, where the country’s varied geography offered stand-ins for the script’s international locations.
