Based on the original Halo game launched for Xbox in 2001, the development of this live-action Halo series has been going on for nearly as long as the franchise has existed.
Following the cancellation of a Neil Blomkamp-directed Halo film, a TV show was soon put into production. It was reported that Steven Spielberg would produce, and it would arrive in 2015. Clearly, that didn’t happen.
The show ended up at Paramount with Steven Kane and Kyle Killen as showrunners. Killen left before the start of production, and Kane will depart after season one is completed.
Here’s the teaser:
