Live-action Portal-themed web series Aperture R&D premiering March 15

Aperture R&D, a live-action comedy web series based off the Portal universe, will premiere via Machinima on March 15.

You can watch the video above to get a taste of the show's style and humor. According to the video description, the show is "based in the world of Portal 2, [where] the idiosyncratic scientists of Aperture Research Labs are in an endless battle for the meaningless title of Lab Team of the Month."

Wayside Creations, an LA-based production company, will produce the series. The team is best known for popular fan film Fallout: Nuka Break.
