The lights are on
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.

It seems most people in this thread don't remember Fallout: Nuka Break. If done right, it could turn out very good. www.youtube.com/watch
It COULD work. Then again, it most likely won't...
Not sure why everyone in the comments is so negative on it. Fallout would make a great TV show, in my opinion. It doesn't need a big budget or anything, it should just focus on a lone wanderer and the people he meets along the way. But where would it be set?
I would actually watch this!
not reading the comic that fallout had which was awesome. TV show could only work if you don't base it on any same *** story that a game just had. Same goes for movies to games.
Batman arkham ayslum and city was done by the guy who did the cartoon. Good *** only works when you hire good people to write it.
It would still be better than Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel :P
If true, I would hope it would be an HBO series, so there are no restrictions on the violence and brutality of the wasteland.
Wasn't there a Fallout web series featuring that one redhead from All That?
Might be good, might be bad. Only one way to find out, and I'd be willing to give it a shot (assuming it actually happens).
I hope so. (didn't read the article. just answering the question!)
idk how i'd feel if it was a real thing with previews n such but atm i can honestly say its not something i think i would wanna/enjoy watching :/
What ever happened to the Legate Lenius movie?
I don't know how good this could be.
well if they make this a big money project like the walking dead or game of thrones or something like that I might take interest. Even if it does have a lot of money backing it though it really just depends, so I -am- curious but just not sure yet.
This would actually make an amazing series. Even if it didn't follow the main person and it was just some random wanderer it would still be awesome.
