Steven Spielberg is Making a Halo TV Show

Techies rejoice: Steven Spielberg, the master of techie movies, is making a techie TV show.

At today’s Microsoft XBox event in Washington, the company launched their new product, XBox one, before announcing they were teaming up with the Jewish filmmakers to create a television series based on the Xbox-exclusive, first-person shooting game, “Halo.”

The show, titled “World of Halo,” will be an Xbox Live exclusive, following suite to companies which create original content for their products, like Netflix’s move with the “House of Cards” series.

Spielberg took the stage, digitally, after the announcement, to address the crowd of the new project, NBC reports.

“For me, the Halo universe is an amazing opportunity to be at that intersection where technology and myth-making meet to create something really groundbreaking,” Spielberg said.
