343 Industries and Pilgrim Media Group are bringing competitive Halo 5 to TV screens.
There is no specific details on what format the show may take, but the most likely option is that the show would be based on highlights or live broadcasts of the Halo Championship Series.
The show is the first result of a partnership between Pilgrim, Lionsgate and ESL, with more shows expected to be developed during 2017.
"We continue to be blown away by the sheer excitement surrounding e-sports; the scope and buzz are growing every day," said Craig Piligian, CEO of Pilgrim Media. "E-sports and Halo fans are exceedingly passionate about gaming and devoted to their favorite titles and franchises — they are exactly the kind of audience we want to produce for."
"We're thrilled to be partnering with Pilgrim on developing a reality series that will bring the intensity and extreme competition of Halo 5: Guardians e-sports to a television audience," said Kiki Wolfkill, head of Halo transmedia and entertainment at 343. "There is no better partner than Pilgrim to give our fans insight into the world of Halo e-sports."
