@blackace: You are delusional if you think shows produced by Microsoft will be on par with House Of Cards, Orange Is The New Black or Hemlock Grove. Prepare to be disappointed if you expect that level of programming.
Do you know who MS has in charge of their programming? Do you have a list of writers, directors, and actors? That is such a ridiculous thing to say when you have no clue who is doing what. MS certainly has the money to hire the best, most talented people. Having Steven Speilberg on Halo TV show and Ridely Scott on the movie is a damn fine start.
