Amazon’s Prime Video division is moving forward with production of a TV series based on post-apocalyptic RPG Fallout.
That’s according to Deadline, who claim production will begin on the project this year. According to them, the series will come from Kilter Films. They’re a production company helmed up by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy who created hit HBO show Westworld. Nolan will also be directing the show’s premiere episode.
As per the report, showrunning duties will fall to Geneva Robertson-Dworet who co-wrote the 2018 Tomb Raider movie and 2019’s Captain Marvel. She’ll be joined by Graham Wagner who was a producer & writer on Silicon Valley and The Office (US).
The Fallout TV project was first announced back in July 2020. At the time, series executive producer Todd Howard said of the project: “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.”
Nolan and Joy also added a statement of their own. “Fallout is one of the greatest game series of all time. 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.”
There’s no word yet when we can expect the Fallout TV series to land on our screens, but hopefully we’ll hear more as production rolls on.
