Variety reports that Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy are developing the Fallout show on Amazon based on the popular Bethesda video game RPG franchise.
Bethesda Game Studios will be involved in the development of the show and series director Todd Howard will serve as executive producer on the show.
“Fallout is one of the greatest game series of all time. Each chapter of this insanely imaginative story has cost us countless hours that we could have spent with family and friends. to live up to this huge, subversive and darkly funny universe with Amazon Studios, “Joy and Nolan said in a statement.

“Over the past decade, we’ve seen many ways to bring Fallout to the screen,” Todd Howard said in a statement. “But it was clear from the moment I first talked to Jonah and Lisa a few years ago that they and the team at Kilter were the ones doing the right thing.”
Fallout is an RPG series for video games set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland of a nuclear war. Bethesda bought Fallout IP from Interplay 2007 and turned the isometric RPG series into a first person RPG with Fallout 3. Bethesda has since gone on to create Fallout 4 and Fallout 76.
Plot details or casting have not been revealed, so it is unclear whether Nolan and Joy will create an adaptation of one of Bethesda’s Fallout games, or a new series in Bethesda’s universe.
