Fox Turning Battlefield: Bad Company Into An "Action Comedy"

Well, such a game really does lend itself well to a television show, don't you think? All sorts of entertainment value!

Battlefield: Bad Company from Electronic Arts combined top-notch action with some very cool characters and a decent script, so perhaps it's no surprise to hear that the sub-series is heading to the small screen.

As reported by Deadline, Fox is preparing a one-hour action comedy, which will be written by John Eisendrath ("Alias"). The show will boast the main characters from the original Bad Company, and it's also interesting to note that EA's Patrick Bach will be one of the executive producers. We've seen a lot of games go the movie route but this is a little different, so maybe it'll fare better. Those who played the BC games know the style and atmosphere could be great in an "action comedy." That genre sounds about right.

So you know...just cross your fingers.

Most likely an hour long show (multiple episodes).
Or atleast thats the impression I had.

I hoping that they're hard at work making a Bad Company 3 game right now.

I bet this will end up being great. Just get a good cast and it's a winning formula!

I really didn't find the characters, or story in general, of Bad Company very exciting. I mean, Marlowe's script was alright, but the rest of it was just cookie cutter stereotypes. In short, really not interested. Make Resistance 3 or Bioshock, or something with some soul into a TV series and I'll be there.

Falling sky resembles Resistance in some ways, closest thing we'd ever get probably.

Good, not sure if I'll buy immediately.
Eh, not bad, but I don't care.
It's just a stupid money grab.
