Binge and Nightdive Studios are teaming up to produce a live-action series based on the critically acclaimed System Shock franchise.
IGN has decrypted a message in cyberspace and discovered that System Shock is being adapted into a live-action TV series that will be produced by Allan Ungar, who directed and co-wrote the Uncharted fan film that went viral a few years ago. Nightdive Studios' Stephen Kick and Larry Kuperman will both serve as executive producers on the project.
The original System Shock game drops players into Citadel Station, where an indentured hacker wakes up from a coma only to find themselves plunged into the twisted aftermath of a mutiny and immediately confronted by armies of cyborgs, robots, and a corrupt AI named SHODAN that controls operations and threatens to unleash terror at the space station.
"I've always believed that a live-action adaptation of System Shock would be the perfect medium to retell the harrowing story of Citadel station and its rogue AI that subjects the crew to unimaginable horror," said Kick, Nightdive's CEO and Founder. "We're very excited to see the talented team at Binge bring System Shock to life in horrifyingly real and new ways."
The live-action System Shock series will be released exclusively on Binge, an all-new streaming platform dedicated to delivering premium entertainment for gamers. Binge's streaming service will launch in 2022 with a library of original series and shows inspired by popular video games that will stream for free on any internet-connected device.
System Shock joins Binge's original content slate, which also includes an adaptation of the Driver video games that will "focus on undercover agent and ex-racecar driver John Tanner as he tries to take down a crime syndicate." That series is being produced by Ungar and Binge's Vincent Talenti, with a team of executive producers hailing from Ubisoft Film & Television.
