Prior to the release of David Bowie's final album, Blackstar, the artist allowed InstaMiniSeries early access to it. InstaMiniSeries is a new miniseries channel created exclusively for Instagram. Titled "UNBOUND: A InstaMiniSeries," is a "visual interpretation of the album as opposed to a literal, linear narrative," according to a press release. The show premieres at 8 p.m. E.T. and will last for sixteen episodes with new episodes arriving every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday until the series' completion.
The press release went on to relate, "Completed in December 2015 and spanning 16 episodes, "UNBOUND: A InstaMiniSeries" takes its audience on a journey of evocative images inspired by the moods suggested in the album's music, lyrics and artwork...Each episode of the series, designed with a global audience in mind, is sure to capture the imaginations of all who experience it and will undoubtedly lead to endless speculation and discussion of meaning,metaphor and intention."
The show stars Tari Gevinson and Patricia Clarkson and was directed by Nikki Borges who is also a producer of the series. Carolynn Cecilia penned the series and is also producing along with Lawrence Peryer.Check out a trailer for the show below:
