Doug Liman, director of 2002 spy thriller The Bourne Identity, is set to make an action television series - in virtual reality.

Liman - whose credits also include actioners Mr and Mrs Smith (2005) and Edge of Tomorrow (2014) - will oversee the six-part series that will be penned by Oscar-nominated screenwriter Melisa Wallack (Dallas Buyers Club).

Set in modern-day Manhattan, Invisible will follow the Ashlands - a prominent New York City family in possession of a supernatural gift that is on the brink of discovery.  

Partnering with virtual reality cinema company Jaunt, this will be a television series shot entirely in virtual reality.

The episodes will become available via the Jaunt VR app on Google Play and iTunes.

It was recently announced that NBCUniversal was producing Halcyon, a Syfy TV series that will be featuring five episodes specifically designed for VR platform Oculus Rift.

Invisible is set to premiere later this year.
