Fox is developing an hour-long action comedy based on the Electronic Arts video game Battlefield: Bad Company. John Eisendrath (Alias) will write the pilot script and executive produce.
The video game follows four maverick soldiers who leave their military lives behind to work in the private sector. They begin to realize that their shady commanding officer had used them for missions involving a shadow unit within the government, which wants them all dead because they know too much.
Doug Robinson will executive produce for Happy Madison's television division, alongside Electronic Arts' Patrick Bach and Patrick O'Brien. No production schedule was given for the new pilot.
John Eisendrath also created ESPN's Playmakers and NBC's Outlaw.
