Taking the next step in virtual reality programming, Discovery has partnered with Toyota to release the car company’s first-ever scripted virtual reality short-form miniseries, entitled The Satchel. Dive head first into the mystery, as an unsuspecting man’s life gets turned upside down when he goes for a coffee date with a mysterious woman clutching a satchel that turns out to mean much more than what it at first appears. The 360-degree videos are hosted on DiscoveryVR.com, as well as on Investigation Discovery’s YouTube page and on InvestigationDiscovery.com/The-Satchel, which allows visitors to go behind-the-scenes with the cast! The experiences can be viewed in VR on the Discovery VR app for Android and iOS, Oculus Rift and Samsung Gear VR, powered by Oculus.

The four episodes of The Satchel, presented by the 2017 Toyota Camry, are:

  • The Satchel, a VR Mystery: Part 1 – His Version: In the first installment of this scripted series, Jim’s world gets turned upside down when he goes for a coffee date with a mysterious woman clutching a suspicious bag.

  • The Satchel, a VR Mystery: Part 4 – The Truth: Someone is lying. The detectives round up the suspects to finally discover the truth about the missing satchel.
