The world of Fallout is one where the future envisioned
by Americans in the late 1940s explodes upon itself
through a nuclear war in 2077. In Fallout, the harshness
of the wasteland is set against the previous generation's
utopian idea of a better world through nuclear energy. It
is serious in tone, yet sprinkled with moments of ironic
humor and B-movie-nuclear-fantasies.
"Fallout is one of the greatest game series of all time,"
said Kilter Films' Joy and Nolan. "Each chapter of this
insanely imaginative story has cost us countless hours we
could have spent with family and friends. So we're
incredibly excited to partner with Todd Howard and the
rest of the brilliant lunatics at Bethesda to bring this
massive, subversive, and darkly funny universe to life
with Amazon Studios."
"Fallout is an iconic global franchise, with legions of
fans worldwide and a rich, deeply compelling storyline
that powers it. And Jonah and Lisa are the perfect
storytellers to bring this series to life," said Albert
Cheng, COO and Co-Head of Television, Amazon Studios.

Fallout to the screen," added Howard, Executive Producer
at Bethesda Game Studios. "But it was clear from the
moment I first spoke with Jonah and Lisa a few years ago,
that they and the team at Kilter were the ones to do it
right. We're enormous fans of their work and couldn't be
more excited to work with them and Amazon Studios."
The Fallout franchise has posted record sales and has
received dozens of Game of the Year Awards. Its mobile
game, Fallout Shelter, has been downloaded more than
170 million times.
Fallout is from Amazon Studios and Kilter Films in
association with Bethesda Game Studios and Bethesda
Softworks, with executive producers Nolan and Joy, and
Athena Wickham for Kilter Films, Todd Howard for Bethesda
Game Studios, and James Altman for Bethesda Softworks.
