'Battlefield: Bad Company' TV Show is in the Works

Don't get your hopes up too high on the show being good, but on the plus side this could mean that we'll see a new game being developed.

It's not that 'Battlefield: Bad Company' was a game that didn't sell well, or that it was a bad game. It's the fact that the most recent release for the franchise was in March of 2010 that sparks the question of relevancy. Still, despite being a title that's not so fresh in the mind, 'Bad Company' is getting a TV show.

Fox has picked up the rights to develop a series based on EA's game, with Happy Madison producing. Writer John Eisendrath has been tapped to work on the project, which doesn't give us a lot of hope. Eisendrath was the writer and creator of the NBC bomb 'Outlaw' as well as the writer on a few other not-so-impressive shows.
