Fallout TV series coming to Amazon, Westworld creators to produce

Bethesda’s Fallout series is to get its own TV show at Amazon, with the creators of sci-fi western Westworld set to produce it.

With the success of The Witcher on Netflix, it’s not surprising to learn that other companies are eager to get their own TV adaptations of popular video games (even though Netflix’s The Witcher is technically based on the books).

Recently, news broke that Amazon has commissioned a TV series based on Bethesda’s Fallout series.

It already has producers in the form of Westworld creators Lisa Joy and Jonah Nolan, who will be overseeing the show via their Kilter Films banner.

They will be working closely alongside Bethesda, with the publisher’s Todd Howard and James Altman also set to produce.

‘Fallout is one of the greatest game series of all time,’ said Joy and Nolan in a joint statement to the Hollywood Reporter.

‘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.’

Howard has also praised Joy and Nolan as being the perfect choice to bring the Fallout series to television screens.

‘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.’

The project has also been given a commitment penalty, which means that if executives like the initial script enough, the series will be green-lit with no pilot episode required.

Currently, there is no writer attached and no indication of when the show will begin airing.
