Samsung beats Apple to the… musical sitcom?

I may be in the minority here, but when I think of the type of TV show I’d picture Samsung as, my mind goes to scandalous political thriller House of Cards well before it does to Glee.

Which is, of course, why it makes absolute sense that Samsung is currently in the process of creating its own Glee-style “Musicom” (that’s a sitcom meets musical) centered around the lives of two fictitious young employees. Can’t you practically hear the songs already?

Called Best Future, the series will follow male and female flatmates, and is designed to portray Samsung as the kind of trendy-yet-lovable company people in their twenties and thirties would just love to work for.

It’s being filmed at Samsung’s headquarters in Seoul, as well as its offices in Suwon, Korea. Best Future will debut on YouTube and social media next month, and will consist of six hour-long episodes.

This isn’t the first time Samsung has ventured into sitcom production. Apparently its last sitcom was called Endless Energy and focused on a stressed R&D team with iPhone blueprints, cups of coffee, and a Xerox machine.

No, seriously, it was about hiring policy and employee philosophy.
