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.

This would be amazing!
Is it just me, or did Book of Eli totally feel like a Fallout movie? If that kind of quality was put into a Fallout TV show, with a solid sense of humor, I would so be there.
I would definitely watch that!
I hope this isn't what the 3-dog guy was teasing about. Bring on Fallout 4 already!
Get Frank Darabont to write and direct the first few episodes and you have a winner.
That show would be so boss
oh you mean revolution. yeah that shows out already. not too many companies could make this show as gruesome as it needs to be and amc already has one, walking dead. that means either a showtime/hbo where limited viewers bc of how many people dont have them including myself and people I know, which would lead to pirating ergo the show not being very successful/profitable. The other option is for it to be on abc or something similar and not please the fans in any way for it being to far from the original ip. lose lose scenario. make more webisodes
would definitely watch, assuming it didnt suck.
Yeah I'd tune into this public broadcasting series. It'll be like a real-life Doomsday Preppers but hopefully without any of the bullterd theories, just straight up nuclear catastrophe with crazy mutants and ***! I feel like playing this game now:)
Could go either way, but I'm leaning towards no. Fallout is just to open world to confine it to a TV show.
I always hoped for a movie, but a TV show could be good. Hopefully they take some inspiration from shows like The Walking Dead in terms of quality.
Cool idea, but I'm a little skeptical. I did like the TV series Jeremiah and Jericho which were drama-based in a post-apocalyptic setting. If this show is anything like those, I'm sure I'll enjoy it.
