Halo - Showtime TV Series

Recommended Posts

Quote

SHOWTIME brings its powerful legacy of experience in building stories for premium cable and together with Amblin Television and legendary storyteller Steven Spielberg, have been gracious partners in helping put together the right creative team to bring Halo to television. We are thrilled to have experienced showrunner Kyle Killen (Lone Star) and blockbuster director Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) on board, both of whom bring their own flavor of vision, intelligence, and voice to Halo.

It will be a 9-part epic of MasterChief slowly descending the metal ramps of the Library while asking Cortana to do random web searches for him. Then a 90-minute finale as he runs back up again chased by some shit alien zombies.

S2E4 - Master Chief faces a dilemma when he must choose between a Covenant Carbine and a Needler. Meanwhile, Cortana faces down criticisms of her nudity by wearing a hat.

Lots of thrilling bits mid episode when master halo man gets shot to ribbons and is on his death bed but after hiding behind a waist high wall for a bit he's perfectly alright again.

Perhaps they'll do their own retelling of the (still awesome) initial concept, and then the new Halo: Infinite game will take its cues from this series and be a reboot of sorts.

I don't understand why they have tried so hard to make this a thing. Halo's story is shite and once you take out the bits robbed from Iain Banks it's Proper shite.

I think this might be a sign we are close to the peak for the current TV drama Golden Age. Everybody else is so shit scared of Netflix eating their lunch they'll commission literally anything with some built-in audience now. The reason they couldn't make a film get the go ahead previously was because Microsoft were too greedy with their licensing fees so I assume something changed on their end too, unless Showtime are that desperate for a hit.
