Halo is produced by Showtime in association with Microsoft/343 Industries, along with Steven Spielberg's Amblin Television.

It's been known for some time that Showtime was actively developing "Halo" as a series, and the franchise has gotten the live-action treatment a few times in recent years in the form of digital series, but this promises to be a new take on an epic scale. That version died when XBox opted against entering into the crowded original content space. It moved to Showtime shortly after XBox Entertainment Studios was shut down in 2014 and has been in discussions at the premium cable network for nearly four years, with various creative auspices in talks for it over the years.

"Halo", set in the 24th century, focuses on an interstellar war between humans and an alien race known as the Covenant, largely through the eyes of Master Chief John-117, an enhanced supersoldier, and his AI companion Cortana.

Remember that Halo TV series that the team behind the project swore we were just going to love?

Since launching on Xbox in 2001, Halo has sold more than 77 million copies worldwide and grossed more than $5 billion in sales. "In the history of television, there simply has never been enough great science fiction".

In addition to Awake, Killen created and served as showrunner of the TV series Lone Star and Mind Games, and also wrote the Jodie Foster-directed feature The Beaver. "Kyle Killen's scripts are thrilling, expansive and provocative, Rupert Wyatt is a wonderful, world-building director, and their vision of Halo will enthrall fans of the game while also drawing the uninitiated into a world of complex characters that populate this unique universe". Beyond his feature work, Wyatt's own television experience includes directing the pilots for "The Exorcist" and "Turn: Washington's Spies". Scott Pennington will executive produce alongside Killen and Wyatt, along with Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank for Amblin Television.
