Halo TV series from Steven Spielberg set to start in early 2015 in America.


The live action TV series Halo executive produced by Steven Spielberg that Microsoft announced exactly a year ago is coming to its Xbox game console and television, is set to start on television in America early 2015.

Microsoft is working on a deal with the Showtime TV channel in America for Halo for the series to start its episodes on TV first, before being rolled out on the new Xbox One game console as well.

Halo is executive produced by Steven Spielberg and game maker 343 Studios. The project comes from Nancy Tellem, who runs XBox Entertainment Studios which will bring the futuristic world of Master Chief to life.

The Halo TV series will be its one stand-alone stor but will also complement and enrich the game experience of the Halo game series, Bonnie Ross, the general manager of 343 Industries wrote on Friday on a blog posting.

There's already been four Halo games, and a fifth, Halo 5: Guardians, will be released at the same time as the new Halo TV series.
