Master Chief Will Star In Halo TV Series


Via GameSpot
Quote:
While it won't go into production until next year, Showtime just dropped quite a bit of interesting information about the TV adaptation of Halo they're currently developing. The tidbits came during Showtime's panel at the TCA press tour, a twice-annual event in which broadcast and cable networks present their upcoming shows.

When asked by GameSpot if the series, which is expected to begin shooting in 2019, would feature fan-favorite character Master Chief, both Showtime Networks president David Nevins and president of programming Gary Levine confirmed he would. What's more, when pressed during a small group interview after the Showtime panel, Levine added that Chief would be a lead character on the show.

2001 me is so excited!
2018 me doesn't give much of a damn, lol.

Now that the series has reached irrelevancy, a TV show. Great!

I'm pretty stoked, plus its Showtime so it'll be rated R. I know Halo isn't as popular as it once was but i'm sure this timing will be around the same time as the next Halo game.

An R-rating doesn't automatically make things good and, for the most part, the Halo series is pretty much PG-13 most of the time.

Yup. Maybe it will be great. But I just find it hard to care.

There will be female spartans, there will be blood, there will be sweet space and alien world scenes. There will be a non PG13 cortana.

So what you're saying is it's going to be a sci-fi spartacus with violence, sex and devious thick plots. I'm game.

Better cast Gordon Ramsay for the lead.

None of that actually sounds like Halo, though, with the exception of the existence of female SPARTANS.
