Endemol Shine Studios Producing ‘Mirror’s Edge’ TV Show

Mirror's Edge, which is produced by Electronic Arts takes place in the future where couriers known as runners take up the dangerous job of transporting messages without tipping government surveillance.

Yet another video game is to be given a television adaptation. ‘Mirrors Edge’, which has been a huge hit on consoles around the world is to be made into a television series by Endemol Shine Studios.

Mirror’s Edge, which is produced by Electronic Arts takes place in the future where couriers known as runners take up the dangerous job of transporting messages without tipping government surveillance.

The story centres on a runner named Faith, who inadvertently becomes involved in a conspiracy against Conglomerate government which could end society as she knows it.

“We clearly see ‘Mirror’s Edge’ as a franchise for the global TV audience,” Sharon Hall, President of Endemol Shine Studios, said in a statement. “It has a strong female protagonist, a wildly rabid fan base and a worldwide brand that Electronic Arts and EA DICE have done an amazing job establishing.”

“Mirror’s Edge” was originally released in 2007. A reboot of the franchise, “Mirror’s Edge Catalyst,” will debut on June 7.

The game series is much loved for its high octane action and use of parkour or free running as it can be called.

A television series of this kind could be pretty awesome and if successful. It could well be the first feature length television series to come from a video game series.
