1994’s System Shock arrives on the small screen.
A TV show on System Shock is in the works for the next game-centric streaming platform, Binge. The platform will produce a live action TV series inspired by the game and will be streamed exclusively on Binge.com.
Allan Ungar, Binge executive who directed the impressive short Uncharted with Nathan Fillion, is producing the show alongside Stephen Kick And Larry Kuperman of Nightdive Studios as executive producers. The original System Shock was released in 1994 and developed by Looking Glass, directed by Doug Church and the production of Warren Spector. Nightdive Studios now owns the rights to the series and is currently working on a remake of the original game.
“System Shock is an iconic franchise that has been adored by gamers for more than two decades and a series that helped redefine what it was like to play an FPS.“Ungar said.”We are thrilled to do well for the franchise – and the genre – in bringing System Shock to life. “Kick added,” I always believed that a live action adaptation of System Shock would be the perfect medium to tell the heartbreaking story of the Citadel station and of his AI subjecting the crew to unimaginable horror. We are very excited to see Binge’s talented team bring System Shock to life in frighteningly real and new ways“.
We’re still in the early stages, so there’s no news about the cast, director, release date, or other details about the System Shock TV series yet.
