Today Bethesda and Amazon Studios announced a deal to bring the Fallout series to the screen in TV series form.
According to the announcement, the series will be produced by Kilter Films, with Jonathan Nolan, Lisa Joy, and Athena Wickham poised to work on it as executive producers.
Todd Howard and James Altman will collaborate for Bethesda Game Studios and Bethesda Softworks respectively.
Considering Amazon’s involvement, the series is likely to appear on Amazon Prime Video.
The announcement included a statement by Todd Howard himself.
“Over the last decade, we looked at many ways to bring Fallout to the screen.
But it was clear from the moment I first spoke with Jonah and Lisa a few years ago, that they and the team at Kilter were the ones to do it right. We’re enormous fans of their work and couldn’t be more excited to work with them and Amazon Studios.”
Kilter Films’ Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan also commented.
“Fallout is one of the greatest game series of all time. Each chapter of this insanely imaginative story has cost us countless hours we could have spent with family and friends. So we’re incredibly excited to partner with Todd Howard and the rest of the brilliant lunatics at Bethesda to bring this massive, subversive, and darkly funny universe to life with Amazon Studios.”
We also get a comment from COO and co-head of television, Amazon Studios Albert Cheng.
“Fallout is an iconic global franchise, with legions of fans worldwide and a rich, deeply compelling storyline that powers it. And Jonah and Lisa are the perfect storytellers to bring this series to life. We’re thrilled to join with Bethesda to bring Fallout to television.”
