As part of a report over at Deadline
covering the launch of the new series The Wheel Of Time
comes a little nugget in relation to a potential new TV series based on EA and BioWare's Mass Effect.
Apparently a deal is close to being made for a TV series based on the classic scf-fi RPG.
Details are slight but Deadline notes that "one of the company’s newest hopefuls in the arena is Mass Effect", adding "Amazon Studios is nearing a deal to develop a series based on the best-selling sci-fi video game franchise from Electronic Arts".
It's worth highlighting the hopeful portion as Amazon is still working on a big budget Lord of the Rings adaptation in addition to the big budget fantasy that is The Wheel of Time. So this probably means that the Mass Effect series will be similarly large in scope. As for the setting no doubt fans would want the story to follow or at least loosely adapt the events of the original trilogy.
