Virgin teams up with Amazon for The Feed

Virgin Media has struck its first deal with Amazon to co-fund a £29m+ sci-fi series from one of the creators of The Walking Dead.

The 10-part series, called The Feed, is set in London in the near future. The series, adapted by the Walking Dead writer and co-executive producer Channing Powell, is set in a dystopian society where an implant that nearly everyone has that allows memories, emotions and information to be shared goes horribly wrong.

Virgin has been dipping its toes in some exclusive shows of late, but this is the first time to my knowledge they've actually been involved in new content creation for almost ten years.

We're still waiting for the rumoured Amazon Video app on the TiVo platform - maybe this new deal with Amazon may open the door to that appearing soon on our V6 boxes?
