Showtime and Xbox Studios Near Partnership Deal on ‘Halo’ Series

television-tv-news-and-talkWhen it was revealed last year that a Halo television series was being worked on, many fans were excited about seeing a live-action series with Master Chief. But the bad news, at least for me, was that it would be an Xbox exclusive.

Well it seems that is going to change. According to a report by Variety, Steven Spielberg’s Amblin TV is in negotiations with Showtime to co-develop the Halo series. Things are moving slowly “because the sides are charting new territory for a show designed to air on Showtime as well as Xbox, with enhanced interactivity built-in for the latter platform.

It is also reported that sources say the plan is to have episodes premiere on Showtime first, then followed on Xbox. If this is the case, then this is great news, as I already have Showtime and I’m not going to go out and buy an Xbox just to see this. I was hoping there would be another option to watch it.
