Xbox Entertainment Studios is not holding anything back as they attempt to break into the online video world. The company has hired former AMC programming director Ari Mark to oversee the creation of unscripted video content for Microsoft.

Xbox Entertainment Studios announced that it will launch an Xbox-exclusive documentary series this year through its multiplatform media company Lightbox. The first film in the series will document a planned excavation of a New Mexico landfill thought to contain unsold Atari cartridges and hardware buried in the aftermath of the video game industry crash of 1983.

Mark is most known for his work at AMC developing the network-original reality television showsThe Pitch and Small Town Security. Mark also assisted in the creation of AMC’s The Walking Dead – focused talk show Talking Dead, along with Comic Book Men, a reality show set in director Kevin Smith’s comic shop in New Jersey.
