“Halo is our most ambitious series ever, and we expect audiences who have been anticipating it for years to be thoroughly rewarded,” said SHOWTIME president and CEO David Nevins on the prospect of a new Halo TV series. In development at Showtime (which will premiere on Stan in Australia) the new series goes into production early next year - with the help of a number of talented parties.
Including Kyle Killen (Awake) serving as executive producer, writer and showrunner - where Awake was an underrated sci-fi drama from a few years back. And Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) on board to direct multiple episodes. And with Showtime being behind such prestige series as Dexter, Billions, Homeland, and others - this bodes well for the prospect of Halo as a TV series. Very well.
Showtime's David Nevins adds, "In the history of television, there simply has never been enough great science fiction. Kyle Killen’s scripts are thrilling, expansive and provocative, Rupert Wyatt is a wonderful, world-building director, and their vision of Halo will enthral fans of the game while also drawing the uninitiated into a world of complex characters that populate this unique universe."
