The Fallout TV series that was initially teased in the summer of 2020 by Amazon Studios is officially moving forward.
As reported by Deadline, the adaptation of Bethesda’s hit post-apocalyptic franchise is being handled by Kilter Films, a production company run by Lisa Joy and her husband, Jonathan Nolan, the brother of the popular director behind films such as Memento and the Dark Knight Trilogy. Nolan will be directing the Fallout series’ first episode for Amazon’s Prime Video service.
“Fallout, the TV series, is from Amazon Studios and Kilter Films in association with Bethesda Game Studios and Bethesda Softworks, with executive producers Nolan, Joy and Athena Wickham for Kilter Films; Todd Howard for Bethesda Game Studios’ and James Altman for Bethesda Softworks,” Deadline confirmed in its report.
“Following months of dealmaking, Amazon Studios in summer 2020 licensed the rights to the games for Nolan and Joy to develop a TV adaptation under their big overall deal with the streamer and handed the project a series commitment. The announcement was accompanied by an ‘Easter egg’ video teasing the project.”
Production for the Fallout TV series is expected to begin this year. Unlike his brother, Jonathan Nolan only has a few directing credits under his belt: three episodes for HBO’s Westworld, and one episode for CBS’ Person of Interest.
