Amazon Studios is working on a Fallout TV series, with Westworld creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy's Kilter Films attached to produce the project. The show is currently in development with a series commitment.
In a statement, Bethesda Executive Producer Todd Howard revealed more:
“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.”
No story details have been provided for the show as of yet, but the official statement recaps the world of Fallout as "one where the future envisioned by Americans in the late 1940s explodes upon itself through a nuclear war in 2077... It is serious and harsh in tone, yet sprinkled with moments of ironic humor and B-movie-nuclear-fantasies."
Here's what Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy at Kilter Films had to say about it:
"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."
