EQAL In Deal With Creator of 'CSI'
Los Angeles-based EQAL said this morning that it has signed up 'CSI' franchise creator Anthony E. Zuiker on a new multimedia project. According to EQAL, which was behind the lonelygirl15 and KateModern web series, Zuiker and the firm will create a "digi-novel" which will turn traditional book reading into a "multimedia experience." The partnership revolves around Dark Chronicles, a series of crime novels being published by Dutton in September. Financial details of the partnership were not disclosed. EQAL will be in charge of the book's web site, which will launch later this year featuring a blog, social networking features, audio files, videos, photos, and more. The new site will require users to enter a code from the book to access features.
