""It is a very different genre", said Showtime president David Nevins about the new series. "It's futuristic, space-based science fiction, not fantasy.
"We made a conscious decision to hire a writer not known for sci-fi and not known for big battle movies", said Showtime's President of Programming Gary Levine, "because that's already baked into the 'Halo' franchise. And we will service that, but we also wanted to ensure that we were getting beneath the formidable armor of the 'Spartans' and really getting inside the team drama so it felt like it belonged on Showtime."
The Covenant, led by religious leaders the 'Prophets', worship the ancient civilization the 'Forerunners', who perished in combat with the parasitic 'Flood'.
The term 'Halo' refers to the 'Halo Rings' habitable superweapons.
Previously, the live-action mini web series "Halo: Forward Unto Dawn" (2012) consisted of five 15-minute episodes released weekly.
