Brace yourselves, this is a real thing happening.

Fox has put in development Bad Company, an hourlong action comedy based on EA's bestselling video game from Alias alum John Eisendrath, Sony TV and studio-based Happy Madison.

Written by Eisendrath, Bad Company features 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. Eisendrath is executive producing with Happy Madison's Doug Robinson and EA's Patrick Bach and Patrick O'Brien.

that could be good, if done properly. Dont make it focused around any kind of romance and all about war.

I'm assuming this means we will never get another Bad Company game?

I really hope they can pull this off.

#9 Posted by BPoole96 (22784 posts) -

Don't know if I should be excited or not.

Probably not.

#10 Posted by mitu123 (153911 posts) -

Hope the Assault, Engineer, Medic and Recon get roles too!

#11 Posted by ultimate-k (2348 posts) -

Cool, cant wait, just hope they do it right.

#12 Posted by OB-47 (10908 posts) -

This will probably bad.

Also, might hint at Bad Company 3.

#13 Posted by freedomfreak (39189 posts) -
This just sounds wrong.
#14 Posted by lawlessx (46558 posts) -
This...could be good.
#15 Posted by Cherokee_Jack (32198 posts) -
Awesome, it's written by none of the people who wrote the funny dialog I liked in the games.
#16 Posted by stereointegrity (10701 posts) -
this is gonna be so bad......

They won't. The series will fail 5 minutes after the first episode airs.

If anything it means there is a better chance. If people like the show it'll generate a huge amount of interest in Bad Company 3.

Wouldn't be surprised if it got cancelled before the first commercial break.
#20 Posted by Cheleman (7616 posts) -

AWESOME:!:

#21 Posted by Vaasman (11266 posts) -

Well it will either be totally awesome or complete Sh*t.

They should just make BC3 anyways since it'll sell like BC2 or even better.

Also, may I just draw everyone's attention to the involvement of Adam Sandler's production company?

Steven Colbert.

Bad Company is now Jack and Jill 2: Jill With Weapons.

Isn't Bad Company already a gaming version of A-Team? ... except for the fact they are still in the army, I mean.

I totally agree but this is just another way to drum up more hype and attention for Bad Company 3.
#29 Posted by campzor (34932 posts) -
oh my.... hopefully this means there will be a bad company 3
#30 Posted by Moriarity_ (1349 posts) -
If movies don't work maybe TV shows will? I give the show half a season before it gets cancelled although I wouldn't be surprised if it catches on.

Battlefield is now officially more milked than a chocolate cow on a farm.

A-Team has it's moments but is never that great, Bad Company makes me laugh more.

whole different things

Probably going to be terrible, hopefully they at least have the sense to make it follow the first game opposed to the second in terms of story approach.
#37 Posted by October_Tide (5396 posts) -

It has potential, most likely they will make it uber bad but there is still a chance.

#38 Posted by Lief_Ericson (7082 posts) -

I have a soft spot for computer animated shows (Reboot, Spiderman TNAS, Starship Troopers) I will check this out.

#39 Posted by skrat_01 (33767 posts) -
Also, it's Adam Sandler's production company doing it. Oh boy.
#40 Posted by jg4xchamp (47368 posts) -
I'd be interested in a more campy show on tv, considering all the super serious bullsh1t we get. But it's Fox, it's a videogame IP, and it's Bad Company...worse it's battlefield, no worse...it's a videogame ip. It's gonna suck.
#41 Posted by youngmurk911 (3854 posts) -

this is going to be like the doom movie.....except tv style

#42 Posted by Icarian (1474 posts) -

Sounds a lot like A-Team, but maybe it'll work.

#43 Posted by kraken2109 (13007 posts) -

Probably just being made for advertising so they sell more BC3

#44 Posted by Wasdie (49628 posts) -

Instead of Bad Company 3 we get this and EA keeps milking the BF # series.

So it will just be about a bunch of people walking around forever? Because that's all Battle Field is, it's just Walking Field.

I don't think this show is a good idea....

I would prefer a Warcraft or Assassin's Creed TV series.

We've already established countless times that you're just bad at the game and haven't a clue what you're doing

I had Bad Company 2, I sold it later because it was so boring, my gamertag shows it. I don't know why you would buy it over COD, seriously I don't see how someone can have fun with just walking around. I do that outside, I don't want to walk around in a video game.

They should make a show of COD instead, it could be a WW2 show and it would be super intense with all of those great COD moments.
