Console Wars novel getting limited series adaptation from Legendary
------------------------------------------------------------ -------
Console Wars, a novel by author Blake J. Harris that chronicles how
Sega took on Nintendo in the early 1990s is getting adapted for the
small screen. According to Deadline, the novel is being eyed for a
limited series from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's Point Grey
Pictures and Legendary.

The 2014 novel is a behind-the-scenes account of how Sega, then a
scrappy company led by an unconventional visionary, went head to
head with Nintendo and broke the monopoly they had on home console
gaming with the release of their console, the Sega Genesis.

Jordan Vogt-Roberts (Kong: Skull Island, The Kings of Summer) is
set to direct, while Mike Rosolio (American Vandal, Sesame Street)
will be writing the pilot episode. Rogen and Goldberg wrote the
forward for Harris' book, will serve as executive producers along
with James Weaver, Scott Rudin and Eli Bush, Julian Rosenberg of
Circle of Confusion, Harris and Jonah Tulis' Flying Penguin
Pictures, along with both Rosolio and Vogt-Roberts. Josh Fagen will
oversee for Point Grey.

Rogen and Goldberg have produced a number of projects for the big
and small screen through Point Grey Pictures, including the feature
cartoon Sausage Party, AMC's Vertigo adaptation of the comic book
Preacher, as well as The Boys for Amazon Studios and Black Monday 
for Showtime - the latter two which are currently in

Legendary, meanwhile, has scores of projects currently in
development, Dwayne Johnson's action movie Skyscraper, the Kaiju
sequel Pacific Rim: Uprising, and the upcoming Pokemon adaptation
Detective Pikachu.

No other details, including casting or what network this will air,
are known at this time.
