Showtime In Talks With Xbox Studios on Developing 'Halo' Series
Reported by Outsiders - 2014.05.05
Xbox Entertainment Studios and Showtime are in deep negotiations to develop a live-action 'Halo' drama series. The project is being headed by Nancy Tellem of the Microsoft Production Unit.
MIcrosoft is looking to develop 'Halo' and other properties as high-end series productions in an effort to enhance the Xbox platform as an entertainment service for its base of 48 million subscribers. Talks have been taking a long time because the show is designed to air on Showtime as well as Xbox, with enhanced interactivity built in for the latter platform. Details are limited but it would appear the episodes would be shown on Showtime before airing on the Xbox network.
