“Fallout” franchise and Amazon Studies announced the “Westworld” executive producers are working on a TV series based on the post-apocalyptic video game that will make its way to Amazon Prime Video.
“Fallout is one of the greatest game series of all time,” Nolan and Joy said in a statement with The Hollywood Reporter. “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.”
“Fallout is an iconic global franchise, with legions of fans worldwide and a rich, deeply compelling storyline that powers it. And Jonah and Lisa are the perfect storytellers to bring this series to life,” said Albert Cheng, COO and Co-Head of Television, Amazon Studios. “We’re thrilled to join with Bethesda to bring Fallout to television.”
