Is A Fallout Television Series In The Works?

A new trademark filing by Bethesda Softworks suggests the possibility that the company is working on developing a TV series based on its Fallout RPG franchise.

In a posting on The Vault, writer Conor Murton noticed the filing with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, which seeks a trademark for "Fallout" for the purpose of "Entertainment services in the nature of an on-going television program set in a post-nuclear apocalyptic world."

Obviously, companies file trademarks all the time, even if they don't intend to develop properties for those trademarks, sometimes only to prevent other companies from infringing on their IPs. However, a Fallout TV show would definitely be an intriguing project.

    God I hope not...

    Unless they really do it "right" (which is rare) it will be just another cash grab using an IP that I love.

    Most likely filed to prevent others from using it

    Dunno about this, but I know they are making a television series on Battlefield: Bad Company.

    they have announced that FO4 is in the works.  it might be related to that, in one way or another.

    Other sites are reporting this as well, made me remember this awsome fan film from a few years ago that did very well on Y-Tube http://youtu.be/Q9UwlAAnlmg

    Personaly I have always been fascinated by post apocalyptic fiction. Would love to see a show based in the FAlout setting..............As long as it's not based around the Brotherhood of steal. Those guys are tools! ;)
