San Francisco-based filmmaker and Webby Awards founder Tiffany Shlain has signed on with AOL to create an original eight-episode web series for the company's video hub On Network.

Using archival footage, animation and personal anecdotes, "The Future Starts Here" -- which will be produced by Shlain's own production company The Moxie Institute -- explores human identity and connectedness in the post-internet age. Shlain, who is an adept self-promoter, similarly broached this topic in her 2011 documentary "Connected: An Autobiography About Love, Death and Technology."

Shlain joins a roster of web-worthy celebs -- including Sarah Jessica Parker, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jonathan Adler -- who will soon be launching web series on AOL On Network. Watch the trailer for "The Future Starts Here" below.
