With Amazon Prime Video announcing several key roles for the project, the Fallout TV series is finally hitting the road. The director, producers, and production team worked together to finally bring the Badlands of Bethesda to life on the small screen.
deadline Jonathan Nolan will reportedly direct the first episode of Amazon’s adaptation of the Fallout series, which will be produced by Nolan and Westworld co-creator Lisa Joy’s Kilter Films. Along with Westworld, Nolan is known for creating “People of Interest” and has collaborated with his older brother Christopher Nolan on films such as Interstellar, Prestige and the Dark Knight trilogy.
Also on the team are Geneva Robertson-DeVoret and Graham Wagner, who are the showrunners of the series. Robertson-Dworet co-wrote “Captain Marvel” and served as executive producer on several comedy shows, including “Portlandia” and “Silicon Valley.” Executive producers include Nolan, Joy and Athena Wickham (another Westworld alumnus), as well as Todd Howard of Bethesda Game Studios and James Altman of Bethesda Softworks. That’s quite the table.

We know that the Fallout series has been in development for a while. After a process of several months, Amazon Studios was granted a license to produce the series in 2020. It then released a very branded trailer for the project, showcasing a TV and the classic “stand by” screen we know and love. Of course, projects like this take time — especially when we’re in the midst of a pandemic — so it’s no surprise that it would take two years to even officially go into production.
The setup remains a mystery, though. Obviously, we’ll be watching a series about post-apocalyptic America with domes and blue costumes, and possibly some cannibal raiders, but where and when it’s set remains a secret. The cast has also not been announced.
While waiting for the show to air, you can work it out by watching the existing Fallout series. Radiation: Nuclear Destruction is a multi-season web series that aired in 2011, and while Bethesda wasn’t involved, making it an unofficial series, it’s still 100% Fallout. And it’s not bad!
