Channel 4 commissions video games show for mobile

Channel 4 is developing a number of TV programmes for tablet and smartphone users, and it includes a video games show.

The short is called Two Player, which sees celebrity friends chat and play video games together. It’s being developed by former GameSpot and ITV games video expert Johnny Chiodini.

The show will only be four minutes in length and run for 12 episodes. It has been designed specifically for mobile phones, specifically iOS and Android.

It is part of a number of new shows that can be found via 4OD, and are due to air from July.

Short form content is an incredibly exciting development both for viewers and for producers," said Richard Davidson-Houston, Channel 4’s Head of Online.

"We’ve already had a great response to Shorts from some of the UK’s most innovative new indies. Our doors and minds are wide open to ideas from forward-thinking producers who want to join in with this exciting new development.”
