Aside from the “Call of Duty” franchise and maybe a day or two on the last “Battlefield” game, my war game playing experience is pretty limited. So while I’ve heard of “Battlefield: Bad Company”, the game from Electronic Arts, I’ve never actually played it. I might give it a try, though, since it sounds like a hell f a good time. Plus, there’s news that EA and Sony TV have tapped former “Alias” scribe John Eisendrath to write the pilot and develop a “Bad Company” TV series based on the game, so I can always call it research.
The TV show will follow the main characters from the game, four renegade soldiers who “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.”
I hate it when that happens. Explosions, hilarity, and other cool stuff (within a TV show budget, of course) ensue.
Eisendrath will stay on as producer along with Happy Madison’s Doug Robinson and EA’s Patrick Bach and Patrick O’Brien. The original spin-off game proved popular enough to spawn a sequel two years later.
Here’s the original launch trailer for the first “Bad Company” title in 2008:
