Stephen King's "N" - online series with ties to CBS

According to the website for Stephen King's "N" www.nishere.com :

Master storyteller Stephen King presents a revolutionary new form of entertainment: his short story “N.” brought to vibrant life through a series of 25 graphic video episodes. The original series tells the story of a psychiatrist who falls victim to the same deadly obsession as his patient—an obsession that just might save the world!

Drawn by award-wining comic book artist Alex Maleev, and colored by famed comic book colorist José Villarrubia, the episodes were adapted by Marc Guggenheim, co-creator of the ABC-TV series “Eli Stone” with creative oversight from Stephen King.
I'm not sure I would call the graphic video episode format "revolutionary" (compare to Heroes Graphic Novel animated comics), but with new episodes posted each weekday until August 29th, an embeddable player (below, but go to the website to view larger versions), distribution via CBS Mobile, CBS Interactive and iTunes, and plans for a Stephen King Book version "Just After Sunset" in November 2008 and a Marvel comic book series in 2009, this is an interesting example of a story presented in various media, including online video.

About CBS Interactive, the Q & A page for Stephen King's "N" says
“N.” will be available across the web through the CBS Audience Network, capable of reaching 92% of the U.S based online audience. The CBS Audience Network consists of online partners such as AOL, Microsoft, Yahoo, Comcast, Joost, Bebo, Netvibes, Sling Media and Veoh as well as Web sites from CBS's owned television, radio, and affiliated stations.
EQAL is also working with CBS as mentioned in their press release from May 14, 2008 CBS and EQAL Team Up for First-of-Its-Kind Partnership to Create Integrated TV and Online Shows.
