A TV series based off of the games based off of true stories.
Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30

Scott Rosenbaum has been named the showrunner for a new television series based off of Gearbox's Brothers in Arms game series. The Brothers in Arms series itself is based off of true events and "explores previously classified World War II stories." The first season of the planned TV series will "reveal the biggest scandal of WWII, one which miraculously was kept secret for 40 years."

Now that is a very tall claim to make.

The first Brothers in Arms game was released back in 2005. The game, Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30, was actually used to recreate some WWII scenarios for the History Channel show called Brothers in Arms. This was before the History Channel focus shifted almost entirely to the braindead crackpot conspiracies and alien channel.

Fans of the franchise have been waiting a long time for a new entry in the Brothers in Arms franchise to be made. The last release in the main series was 2008's Brothers in Arms: Earned in Blood that was released for the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. There were some other Brothers in Arms titles released since then but mainly for mobile devices. That last of these mobile offerings came out in 2014 with another game, Brothers in Arms: Furious 4, was cancelled in July 2015. It was reported that some elements from Furious 4 actually made their way into Battleborn.

As far as I've seen, there is no mention of which station or network this new television show will air on. All we know for sure is that Rosenbaum is leading the charge and has a fairly solid crew to back him up. Rosenbaum recently worked as the showrunner and executive producer for USA Network's Queen of the South series. He was also the showrunner for V and Gang Related. He also worked on The Shield for FX.

Scott Rosenbaum will be joined by Gearbox's own Randy Pitchford. They will be joined by Jean-Julien Baronnet (Assassin's Creed producer), Richard Whelan (first assistant director Band of Brothers Pacific, Captain America and Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw), and Sean Haran (chief business officer at Gearbox, Brothers in Arms series producer).

“Scott is an incredible talent. I have tremendous respect for him as a writer and a showrunner and am thrilled for him to be a part of this project,” said Gearbox Entertainment Company co-founder and series producer Randy Pitchford. “Scott will create more than a war show – we’ll all be on the edge of our seats as this series will be a surprising and heartfelt emotional journey that resonates across generations with brotherhood as the theme that reconciles and connects humanity.”

“I’m honored to be joining the frontlines of this project and look forward to creating an emotional experience around a title that means so much to the Gearbox community,” said Rosenbaum. “What attracted me to this series was that while it’s effectively a show about war, the series is really about the incredible stories of the ordinary men and women, from the soldiers, resistance groups, to local civilians who are confronted and overcame impossibly difficult, extraordinary situations. In addition, it’s incredibly exciting to be able to bring these previously classified, unknown stories to an audience, stories that an audience is going to be quite frankly shocked they hadn’t heard before.”
It seems a little odd to kick off a new television show for Brothers in Arms when there really hasn't been any major release in well over a decade now. Perhaps this means Gearbox is going to announce a new entry in the series soon? Maybe. If nothing else, it may be used to see if fans are eager for another game or not. I'm willing to bet that yes, fans are indeed eager for another game.

If you're interested, all of the mainline Brothers in Arms titles are available on Steam for $9.99 (USD) each.
