HBO looking to turn Indie Game: The Movie into a TV show

0

"Wait, what?" That was the immediate reaction many of us had upon hearing HBO had acquired the rights to create a fictional, half-hour television series based off Indie Game: The Movie.

Things worsened when Deadline described it as a comedy series, but the duo behind the documentary, Lisanne Pajot and James Swirsky, followed up by saying such a label was not accurate. Thankfully, this project -- which will be produced by Scott Rudin (The Social Network, Moneyball) -- isn't a sitcom.

"The people involved, the network involved -- all are, BY FAR, the best people possible to make this show," wrote Lisanne and James. "We are ecstatic about the possibilities of working with this team. All you need to do is look at the list of HBO series titles & Scott Rudin's IMDB and you can see why we think this is a brilliant thing. We want to see this show happen. We want to watch this show."
