Fallout TV Series?

The United States Patent & Trademark Office Database has a Service Mark application filed last week by Bethesda Softworks for "Fallout," with the following explanation: "Entertainment services in the nature of an on-going television program set in a post-nuclear apocalyptic world." This may explain the recent tease by the voice actor who plays Three Dog saying "There may be more of the Dog coming!" Or it may be something else. Or nothing. Thanks Ausir via The Vault.

I don't think they could really do it without a totally insane budget though. I don't want something like Fallout confined to the small sets and cheap location shoots I see on TWD. Book of Eli had its problems but they sure nailed the sets and design of a Fallout-ish world, unfortunately the movie cost a literal fortune.

But hey you never know, CGI can do wonders. I didn't think anyone could do Game of Thrones but that show has some amazing CGI in place of the larger areas that aren't feasible.

Yeah, my immediate thought was "there is no way they can afford a TV show based on Fallout."

And sure, CGI can (and does) do wonders, but it's not exactly cheap. The majority of BSG's budget went to CGI, even in episodes where the CGI was only a few minutes of action. Those animators etc cost a lot of money.

So unless they film everything in the same abandoned building, I don't really see this working out very well...


A Fallout or a post-apocalyptic show shouldn't really cost any more money than it would to make say a western. The show Nuka-Cola Break is able to approximate the feel of Fallout all-be-it in a slightly camp way on a shoe-string budget. Then you have shows that cover similar topics like the Walking Dead, Falling Skies, Jeremiah, and Jericho. Fallout doesn't really need huge amounts of FX more likely interesting sets. You don't necessarily need to raid a vault or fire a plasma rifle every episode.

I don't think the costs are going to be that outrageous and the established fanbase will mean it pretty much won't flop immediately.

Yeah, speaking of costs they pulled it off with that time travel dinosaur show on FOX or whatever (the really shitty one that had an insane budget). A Fallout TV show would not require nearly that amount of CGI to be believable.
