Hitman is getting a TV series on Hulu streaming service

Despite being dropped by Square Enix earlier this year, going indie was a “genuine watershed moment” for Hitman studio IO Interactive. With new games planned, Agent 47’s episodic series is in rude health—and is now in-line for a television series.

As reported by Deadline (via gamesindustry.biz), Fox 21 has partnered with streaming service Hulu to launch a Hitman series—with a pilot script written by Derek Kolstad, the creator and writer of the John Wick action films. Kolstad will be an executive producer, alongside film producers Chuck Gordon and Adrian Askarieh—the latter of which worked on both Hitman movies.

Deadline reports that “the hope is for Hitman to become a flagship series” for Hulu, which, given how poorly received both the 2007 and 2015 films were, is perhaps something Agent 47 deserves.

Speaking to the game, Phil’s review of the first season in its entirety can be read here. Also from Phil, I really enjoyed this piece on the making of Sapienza, Hitman’s best level.

  1. Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.

    Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very
    techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about making my own but
    I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions?

    Thank you

  2. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting
    my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% positive.

    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you
