Battlefield: Bad Company being turned into action comedy TV series

Whereas most video games seek lucrative movie deals, EA is setting its sights for TV. DICE's Battlefield: Bad Company series will be turned into an "hour-long action comedy" executive produced by John Eisendrath (Alias). Sony Pictures and Happy Madison will be producing the series for FOX.

According to Deadline Hollywood, Bad Company will feature the main characters from the game. "It follows four renegade soldiers as they exit military life and enter the private sector. But trouble is never far behind as they realize their commanding officer had used them to further the ends of a shadow unit within the government and now wants them dead to cover his tracks," the report details.

Bad Company 2, the last entry of the spinoff series, released in 2010. The next game in the Battlefield series is Battlefield 4.
