The Fallout TV series is starting to come to fruition after it was first announced in July of 2020. According to Variety, Jonathan Nolan will be directing the first episode of the TV series, which will release on Amazon Prime Video sometime in the next year. Additionally, Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Graham Wagner will serve as the series showrunners.
Nolan was first announced as a co-executive producer of the series with his wife, Lisa Joy. However, now it seems as though he will take a more hands-on approach in crafting the series with its showrunners. Nolan is known for creating CBS’ Person of Interest and HBO’s Westworld, which he also directed some episodes of. He has also been a longtime screenwriting partner with his brother Christopher Nolan, helping him write The Dark Knight trilogy and Interstellar among others. His recent credits also feature an executive producer role for his wife’s directorial debut, Reminiscence.
Geneva Robertson-Dworet has previously worked on another video game adaptation by co-writing the 2018 version of Tomb Raider, with Fallout being her first television gig overall. She also co-wrote the screenplay for Captain Marvel, with directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. Graham Wagner has produced seasons of The Office, Portlandia, and Silicon Valley, while also acting as a writer for episodes of these respective shows.
No details on when production will start. However, it’s certainly exciting to see three highly talented individuals at the helm of the series, which could make for a terrific video game adaptation.
