FOX developing TV series based on Battlefield: Bad Company

Online American magazine, Deadline is reporting that the television network FOX is developing a series based around the storyline of EA DICE's Battlefield: Bad Company.


The report states that John Eisendrath has been put in charge of adapting the story for the small screens. Eisendrath's past TV credits including being Executive Producer and Writer on many episodes of Alias. DICE's Patrick Bach is said to be involved with the project. 

The project is set to follow the storyline of the single player campaign closely. In case you haven't played 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 realize 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."

Battlefield: Bad Company came out on PS3 and Xbox 360 back in the summer of 2008 and was met with generally high praise.

Can't say I've played it, but the story sounds highly generic. there are far better video game stories that could be adapted for TV.

Could be interesting. If this is a success we might see more games turned into TV shows. As long as they're good, I wouldn't mind. :P

i loved the bad company games with their great humour and hope they make another one soon instead of releasing a new battlefield every year

Not to be all cynical but knowing Fox, it will get cancelled as soon as it starts to get good...

you know they'll spend loads on advertisement and promoting it, then after the first season, it'll get cancelled haha.

It all comes down to the budget. Bad Company was set in various places, consisted of huge explosions, and golf carts. I can't see a tv show having a large enough budget to be as entertaining, hopefully I'm wrong though

They should do it all in golf carts. I would actually love to see a low budget Battlefield movie with golf carts and nerf rifles

Just think of all of the games that have been made into movies nearly all are terrible so cant see it being much different when made into a tv show.

Would be good if they capture the comedy and one liners of the games

Wasn't there a film with elements of Battlefield 3 in there or was that more of a promotion thing?

*sigh* why do I get the feeling that this will be nothing but a huge disappointment? Still, if they have the money to waste on it...

I'm afraid the series' plot is gonna be something about bad Russians against good Americans and I don't like this trend in videogames.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
