EA has apparently decided to turn its Mirror’s Edge franchise into a TV show.

As reported by Deadline, EA and Endemol Shine Studios have worked out a deal to bring Mirror’s Edge to the small screen. We’re not quite sure how closely it will follow the plot of either 2007’s Mirror’s Edge or 2016’s Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, but the franchise’s futuristic dystopian setting will sure make for good television.

“We clearly see Mirror’s Edge as a franchise for the global TV audience,” said Sharon Hall, President of Endemol Shine Studios. “It has a strong female protagonist, a wildly rabid fan base and a worldwide brand that Electronic Arts and EA DICE have done an amazing job establishing.”

Well, I don’t know about a “wildly rabid fan base”, but the original Mirror’s Edge was well-received by critic and gamers when it was released in 2007, despite not big a huge seller.

Endemol Shine Studios is part of Endemol Shine North America, who is responsible for shows like The Biggest Loser, MasterChef, Hell on Wheels and Kingdom.

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst comes out June 7 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
