A new online drama series is soon to start on the Bebo social network, called The Secret World Of Sam King. The series follows in the footsteps of series such as Kate Modern and Sofia’s Diary.
This time, the setting is the London headquarters of Universal Music, and so cameos from real-life artists such as Amy Winehouse, Razorlight, and Bloc Party are being arranged in a bid to add authenticity to the show.
The Secret Of My Success
The show will tell of an employee who secretly sets up his own record label, kind of like Michael J. fox’s character did in The Secret of My Success, but that’s where the similarities end.
The Secret World Of Sam King is set to be made by Universal Music UK subsidiary Globe Productions, and independent production company Monkey Kingdom.
An Active Audience
As with the other Bebo shows, the audience are being asked to actively participate in the show. David Joseph, the Universal Music UK chairman and chief executive told The Guardian:
“The show is a compelling, quality drama that will mix a brilliant narrative with cameos from some of our major recording artists. The Secret World of Sam King will appeal to creative users with broad ranging interests, all connected to music.”
Sony Ericsson will appear heavily in the episodes after signing a sponsorship deal for the first three months. As well as a dedicated page on Bebo, the show will appear on other online destinations.
