CBS presents a prime time programming experiment, THE COURIER. This week-long “micro-series” starts on Tuesday, January 24 and will be broadcast at around the same time each night over nine days. The premiere is a 60-second installment followed by 40-second editions.
The Courier follows the story of “iiro”, a mystery man in a race against time to uncover clues in a desperate attempt to rescue his abducted wife. After each installment viewers can visit CBS.com to learn more about “iiro” through an interactive storyline with rich video and text components. In addition, CBS.com will offer each installment for viewing after the original broadcast and immediately following the network broadcast, each episode will be available for streaming on cell phones through the Verizon Wireless V Cast service.
