In a transfer that certainly no person noticed coming, the Driver collection of video video games—a collection that hasn’t seen a serious launch since 2011 and is, by my calculation, the thirteenth most related automobile sport franchise on the market—is getting its personal live-action TV adaptation, writer Ubisoft introduced on Tuesday. Set to stream completely on Binge, an upcoming, gaming-focused streaming service, the Driver TV collection will inform the story of “John Tanner, an ex-racecar driver turned secret agent whose mission is to take down the native crime syndicate.” So, primarily, the plot of the primary Quick & Livid film.
Judging from the dearth of any additional particulars corresponding to who might be in it, what it should seem like, and the way lengthy it is going to be, it looks like manufacturing on the upcoming car-crime present remains to be in its very early levels. For what it is price, although, the present is at present listed on IMDb as a “TV Mini Sequence” so possibly do not anticipate a 20-episode first season. Enjoyable reality: the unique Driver online game from 1999 was impressed by ’70s automobile chase motion pictures and TV reveals, so having the sport spawn its personal present that may presumably be full of automobile chases is both, relying on the way you take a look at issues, a cool full-circle second for the sport franchise’s creators or a barely hilarious indictment on the leisure business’s lack of creativity worthy of a Bojack Horseman subplot.In any case, it does not sound prefer it’ll value a lot to observe Driver as a result of Binge will apparently be free, launch someday in 2022, and “be accessible on any Web-connected gadget.”Received a tip or query for the creator in regards to the new Driver TV present?
