Film and TV blog Deadline is reporting
) that Fox Broadcasting, and production company Happy Madison are developing a Bad Company TV series, based on the characters from the 2008 EA Dice game battlefield: Bad Company (AusGamers 9.0/10)
Written by Eisendrath, Bad Company features the main characters from the game. It follows four renegade soldiers as they exit military life and enter the private sector. But trouble is never far behind as they realize their commanding officer had used them to further the ends of a shadow unit within the government and now wants them dead to cover his tracks. Eisendrath is executive producing with Happy Madison’s Doug Robinson and EA’s Patrick Bach and Patrick O’Brien.
Part of EA’s Battlefield series, Battlefield: Bad Company, a single-player campaign that drops gamers behind enemy lines, was released in 2008 and spawned a sequel two years later. It received mostly positive reviews from critics, who praised the story’s humor as well as the game’s technical aspects.
Given that the report doesn't explicitly indicate otherwise, we're presuming the series will be a live action comedic drama, as opposed to an animated series.
The games were quite obviously inspired by films like Three Kings, Kelly's Heroes, and The A-Team, but the game's characters Privates Marlowe, Sweetwater, Haggard and Sergeant Redford were well crafted and memorable in their own right, so it will be interesting to see how they make their transition to film.
