Angela Watercutter, writing for Wired:

Where they ended up was a smartphone-enabled story, developed and

released by Silver’s company PodOp, that lets viewers decide which

way they want to be told Mosaic’s tale of a children’s book

author, played by Sharon Stone, who turns up dead in the idyllic

ski haven of Park City, Utah. After watching each segment — some

only a few minutes, some as long as a standard television episode

— viewers are given options for whose point of view they want to

follow and where they want to go next. Those who want to be

completest and watch both options before moving on can do so,

those who want to race to find out whodunit can do that too.

Because each node, filmed by Soderbergh himself, feels like a TV

show, launching Mosaic can be akin to sneaking a quick show on

Netflix while commuting to work or waiting on a friend; but

because it’s long story that’s easily flipped through, it can also

enjoyed like the pulpy crime novel on your nightstand, something

you chip away at a little bit at a time before bed.

This sounds fantastic, especially in the hands of someone as innovative and talented as Soderbergh. iOS-only (for now?), but that includes Apple TV.

The app contains a 7-plus-hour miniseries about a mysterious death, but because viewers have some agency over what order they watch it in and which characters' stories they follow, each scene—and the point at which it should be introduced—had to be meticulously planned so that no detail was revealed too late or too soon. The script for it is more than 500 pages long and was written after most of the story was laid out using all of those notecards. Soderbergh and his team have been working on it for years. Turns out it takes a lot of work to overhaul TV as we know it.
