After two live-action series were released on the web, Showtime is bringing the Xbox franchise to TV

TV network Showtime has ordered a live-action adaptation of “Halo” as a 10-episode series.

Filmmaker Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes, the recent Exorcist TV series) has been selected to direct several episodes of the series as well as executive produce the show. Production will begin in 2019, according to The Verge.

 "The TV show will be personal stories with action, adventure and a richly imagined vision of the future,” according to David Nevins, president of Showtime. The project was first announced on 2013 with hopes to collaborate with Steven Spielberg. 

“Halo is our most ambitious series ever, and we expect audiences who have been anticipating it for years to be thoroughly rewarded,” the Showtime president said.

The premise of the show is a 26th century conflict between humanity and an alien threat known as the “Covenant.”

Previously, the Halo franchise has been adapted into several live-action web series to lackluster reviews.

The first person shooter has a dedicated fanbase that has only grown over the years. The Halo franchise is pivotal to the success of the Xbox, Xbox 360, and so on. The first game, Halo: Combat Evolved, was released on November 15, 2001 to rave reviews. 

The series will be produced by Showtime in association with Microsoft and 343 Industries and Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television. Along with Killen, Rupert Wyatt, Scott Pennington, Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank will executive produce. CBS Studios International will distribute. There is no premiere date yet.
