Westworld showrunners are creating a Fallout TV show at Amazon Studios. The TV show adaption is based on the popular RPG from Bethesda Games Studios.
There’s no information on the project at the time. The announcement came in a tweet from Amazon and the Fallout account which featured the classic “please stand by” TV screen. The Hollywood Reporter revealed the project is coming from Westworld creators Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan as part of their deal with Amazon.
Bethesda Game Studios Todd Howard and Bethesda Softwork’s James Altman will serve as executive producers on the project too. The show is reportedly in very early development stages.

Joy and Nolan claim Fallout is one of the greatest game series of all time.
It is quite ironic that Bethesda has teamed up with Westworld showrunner to make the Fallout TV show. If you remember, Bethesda sued Warner Bros. a couple of years ago for the blatant rip off of the Fallout Shelter game. Westworld Mobile contained the same mechanics, code and even the same bugs. After a long lawsuit, the two parties came to an agreement. It seems there’s no bad blood between the two parties now. Live and move on.
