PLAY imagines a not-too-distant future where video games have become indistinguishable from reality. The players of these strange game worlds must confront a new state of “playing” where their true identities are called into question. When it is impossible to tell where life ends and the game begins, only one question matters: Are you playing? A collaboration between writer/director David Kaplan and game designer Eric Zimmerman, commissioned by the Independent Television Series (ITVS) as a part of their ongoing series FutureStates.
