Gearbox Entertainment has teamed up with Scott Rosenbaum to turn the 2005 first-person shooter franchise, Brothers in Arms, into a TV series. The show will focus on “previously unclassified events,” following both U.S. and German soldiers.
Seeing that Randy Pitchford is helping out with this project means that he’ll insert social justice content, especially given his behavior towards fans and his past actions of promoting woke antics.
With that said, website hollywoodreporter.com highlights that Rosenbaum will serve as both the showrunner and executive producer on the Brothers in Arms TV show.
Alongside Rosenbaum serving as the show’s executive producer, Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford will stand as one too.
We also learn from the website that Jean-Julien Baronnet (a producer on Ubisoft’s 2016 Assassin’s Creed film), Richard Whelan (who worked on Band of Brothers: The Pacific, Captain America, Fast and Furious: Hobbs and Shaw) and Sean Haran (Gearbox Entertainment’s chief business officer) will serve as producers on the TV adaptation.
Aside from producers, we also learn a bit about the story. The publication site received word from Rosenbaum saying:
“The story we ended up using has never been dramatized on TV [Exercise Tiger — a rehearsal for D-Day that went wrong]. Almost 800 U.S. servicemen were killed and it had to be covered up because the Allies were preparing for the real Normandy invasion.”
In addition to the above, the Brothers in Arms story centers around a group of eight men. The soldiers must rescue their colonel before the Germans learn of D-Day plans. Additionally, both sides of the “historical conflict” will be included as well as real-life figures from said conflict.
As of now, full production on the TV series hasn’t begun. Both Pitchford and Rosenbaum are looking for directors while searching for an “ambitious” broadcast partner.
In addition to the above, the two are also looking for a cast, but Pitchford says outside of big names, he’s hoping to find “fresh faces that people may not be looking at for the series.”
And speaking of Pitchford, it sounds like Brothers in Arms as a game series will continue sometime in the future according to the following:
“I love the stories we told in the games, and we do have more stories to tell, but a TV show lets us explore this subject matter and the effect on the relationships and people in broader ways.”
Lastly, expect more Brothers in Arms in the foreseeable future, whether it be a TV show or a video game.
