According to Gary Levine, President of Programming at Showtime, the "Halo" live-action TV series, based on the video game franchise "is absolutely still in development, still moving forward and I'm encouraged by what we've seen so far...":
"It's still live action, and it will definitely satisfy the fans of 'Halo' and I think also satisfy the drama audiences of Showtime...."
"Halo" is the military science fiction first-person shooter video game franchise created by Bungie and developed by 343 Industries, a subsidiary of Microsoft Studios, focusing on an interstellar war between humanity and a theocratic alliance of aliens known as the 'Covenant'.
