Microsoft has tapped Ari Mark, AMC's former programming director, to develop "unscripted" content for Xbox Entertainment Studios.

"Unscripted" is likely a euphemism for reality TV-style content, as that was Mark's forte at AMC. At the network, he produced reality shows like The Pitch, Small Town Security, the Walking Dead-spinoff Talking Dead, and Kevin Smith's Comic Book Men. He previously served as director of development for The Sundance Channel.

I enjoy watching things like AMC movie talk, a 30 minute show like that, that goes over gaming news, rumors and questions would be pretty cool.

But they would have to get people as good as the people on AMC movie talk.

When MS starts doing their own program I hope it's gaming focused. A Halo show, a Dead Rising show, ect. And maybe make deals with EA and such to do a Mass Effect mini series, animated game series.
