You guys are not seeing the creative potential here. It doesn't even have to be called EVE the tv show. It could be called Eden, have an amazing director/writer behind it and even get at least a miniseries if not a first season. I mean if someone has a script I think it could happen, just get a studio hyped about your idea and sell them 10 shows or something to see if it can float as a show.

With all the shows that are out there this could happen.

That would i think be a pretty good way to do it, the only problem i could forsee would be that EVE doesnt really have a universally recognised character like Masterchief to play the 'and heres the guy you all already know and love to kick some ass' part.

Pirates - The Invisible Fist of Darwin

you're welcome

Not having a definitive main character also has some benefits.
Think about it, most series are locked into a semi-predictable format because you KNOW the main will survive.
Without a defined main you can kill off characters with impunity.
All that really matters is keeping the story interesting and contiguous.

Come hell or high water, this sick world will know I was here.

The article says that Game of Thrones is their model. That series features interesting characters that come and go, usually quite violently. I imagine story arcs of a few episodes each. Big plans laid out, steps taken, and then horrible failures. Epic space battles. Cut to the FC still dripping with pod goo, punching out the titan pilot fresh out of the medical clone bay, for jumping instead of bridging.

Sounds like it could be good! Thoughts anyone?

An hour of commercials and ship spinning if you ask me.

It would be interesting if they involved some of the actual player community to assist in the creation of it, just like the game.

There are a lot of players that have actually earned a spotlight or two from a series like this.

As another point, you'd have to really dive into the psyche of the actual players to understand any real characters based off of them. They'd also be smart to build 3 parallel stories lines into the series, or as 3 different series. Each representing the different eras of EVE. Starting era, middle era, and modern era. If you actually 'shot' the series or arcs with different effects and 'feel' you'd probably have the makings of a serious winner on your hands from both the player and non-player perspective.

This is entirely possible as a project, but it needs good writing and acting (either live or voice) to pull it off. Everything else is pretty much already there to make it interesting.

Done! Three times, in fact!

Btw, if you've never seen them, I highly recommend you watch them.
