Harper’s Globe, the online companion to CBS’ upcoming mystery series Harper’s Island, has gone live. It bills itself as a “social show” that incorporates videos, photos, and blogs on a social network where you can talk to the characters and participate in the story. You can sign up as yourself, or create a “mask” identity.
Harper’s Island is a 13-week murder mystery that takes place as friends and family have gathered for the posh nuptials of Henry (Christopher Gorham) and Trish (Katie Cassidy). Returning to town is Abby (Elaine Cassidy), who is haunted by a series of grisly murders that took place on the island years ago, of which her mother was a victim. Each week someone will be killed, and the story will be wrapped up at the end of the 13th episode. Harper’s Globe is the name of the small-town newspaper that chronicles the events on the titular island. Members can expect daily news updates, as well be able to import videos from their YouTube and Twitter accounts.
Harper’s Island airs Thursdays beginning April 9 on CBS. It ends July 2.
