"Prison Dancer"

Prison Dancer is an interactive web musical and live stage show inspired by a 2007 viral YouTube hit showing Filipino prisoners performing Michael Jackson’s Thriller

As you'd expect, this webseries about prisoners in the Philippines is made in Canada. The stars include Canadian Idol contestant Mikey Bustos.

What do they mean by 'interactive'? Each episode includes a musical number and interviews with the (fictional) convicts.  At the end of the song, you can click on any of the characters and see a short interview, wherein they outline the story from their POV.

Here is the original viral (fifty million plus views) "Dancing Inmates of Cebu" video.
