Fox plans to make a television series out of EA’s Battlefield: Bad Company, Deadline reports. You might remember Bad Company as that Battlefield game that focused on a colourful singleplayer campaign rather than multiplayer slaughtering.
You might also remember it as the one with the grenade and the smiley face pin. It had a sense of humour. So no surprise that the show will reportedly be an action-comedy:
Fox has put in development Bad Company, an hourlong action comedy based on EA’s bestselling video game from Alias alum John Eisendrath, Sony TV and studio-based Happy Madison.
Written by Eisendrath, Bad Company features the main characters from the game. It follows four renegade soldiers as they exit military life and enter the private sector. But trouble is never far behind as they realise their commanding officer had used them to further the ends of a shadow unit within the government and now wants them dead to cover his tracks. Eisendrath is executive producing with Happy Madison’s Doug Robinson and EA’s Patrick Bach and Patrick O’Brien.
Seems interesting. I dig it!
