Master Chief will be a lead character in Showtime's Halo TV series

Halo TV Series Will Star Master Chief, Is An Original Story

First of all, they clarified that Master Chief will be among the lead characters, which will obviously pose a challenge of sorts since his real face is a secret to this day. However, he also stated that he wouldn't be the only protagonist in the series. According to other individuals working on the show, the network is aiming to air the series in 2020 and it's being labeled as its "most ambitious series ever".

When asked by GameSpot if the series, which is expected to begin shooting in 2019, would feature fan-favorite character Master Chief, both Showtime Networks president David Nevins and president of programming Gary Levine confirmed he would. With credits like the TV show Lone Star and the movie The Beaver to his name, he doesn't immediately sound like a likely candidate for the adaptation.

Of course, while this may be space-based sci-fi, writer and showrunner Kyle Killen certainly isn't known for that genre.

However, as Levine explains, "We made a conscious decision to hire a writer not known for sci-fi and not known for big battle movies or anything".

The "Halo" video game series has been one of the giants of the industry since the early 2000's, so it's befitting the franchise is finally getting a major live-action treatment in the form of a TV series on Showtime.

It was also revealed during the panel that while the TV show "is a new story", the team is working with Microsoft 343 to make sure they don't disrupt canon.

At TCA on Monday, Nevins further described the Halo series as "futuristic, space-based science-fiction" in the vein of Star Trek.

Nevins, though, said that he feels about Killen the same way that he felt about Homeland's Alex Gansa before that series became a hit (and is now entering Season 8). It was a long time to get the script where we felt we had something really interesting and felt like it belonged on Showtime in terms of its character depth.
