Here's a link to writer Tina Pisco who's pitching tomorrow -- great post on the opportunities for online narrative...

From Erase and Rewind Blog:-
Back to writing Internet drama:
A single-layered narrative has a beginning, a middle and an ending. This gives you a timeline. It goes from Act 1-Act 2-Act 3. You can jumble them up, like Pulp Fiction, but it still has a timeline, a definite direction.

A multi-layered narrative has other narratives that run parallel to (and are linked to) the main narrative. They can go backwards, or forwards, or sideways. Much as you have a main character in a story and minor characters (whose parallel stories you get to know a bit about), you have a main narrative from which sprout other narratives. The fundamental shape and direction of an Internet narrative is different from any other writing.
