Fox Developing a Battlefield Bad Company TV Show

You often hear about video games making the movie to the silver screen in this day and age, but the small screen? Not nearly as much.

It’s no Mass Effect HBO show, but it’s a step forward for the medium as Fox has greenlit an hour long drama based on Dice’s Battlefield: Bad Company.

The game follows a group of four ex-soldiers who must reunite to take down their old commander. Alias’s John Eisendrath, Sony TV and Happy Madison are all on board.

The original game was a hell of a lot of fun, but if video games almost never make good movies, will the same be true for TV shows? And out of every game they could have chosen, this seems like a rather strange pick as it’s not quite as universally beloved as other titles may have been. But I suppose those other titles are getting movie adaptations down the road. In any case, I’m looking forward to the attempt.

The original trailer is below:
