A new report has revealed that popular Xbox game Grounded is being adapted as an animated series.
According to media outlet Deadline, Grounded is now the latest video game that is getting the TV series adaptation treatment. It is inspired by A Bug’s Life and Honey I Shrunk The Kids and now it will be adapted by Star Wars the Clone Wars writer Brent Friedman.
The upcoming TV animated series will exist in the same universe as the game. It will follow the story of four friends who are planning big things to elevate their social standing, but their plans get cancelled when they stumble upon a shrinking technology that makes them two inches tall.
Now that they have shrunk, the four friends must now learn how to survive in this dangerous environment. In it lurks dangerous predators, insects, and other dangers. They must also uncover a corporate conspiracy that threatens the entire town.
Obsidian Entertainment and Xbox will be adapting Grounded into a series in association with Waterproof Studios/SC Productions, Kinetic Media, and Bardel Entertainment.
Friedman will write the story together with Brien Goodrich who worked on the Halo video game. The latter will also direct.
“We couldn’t be more excited about diving into the whimsical universe of Grounded. This partnership will be one of great collaboration, expanding on an already wonderful journey of exploration and adventure,” said Tina Chow, CEO, Bardel Entertainment.
“The team at Obsidian have created an incredible world that has already grabbed the attention of the gaming community. We are excited to work with our incredible partners to bring the story to life in an animated series, added Carl Whiteside, MD, WP/SC Productions.”
