Xanthe hearts Ben – first soap Instagram drama
The experimental drama comprises 20 x 15 second episodes that use Instagram’s video capability to create a ‘soap bubble’ – the story follows two Neighbours characters in the events leading up to and following the Lassiters’ disaster.
Users of Instagram are able to access Xanthe hearts Ben from the official Neighbours’ Instagram account – @Neighbours – with the first few episodes available now. Episodes will be posted daily until April 21st when the Instagram storyline catches up with its linear TV counterpart.
