FOX Starts ‘World War III” Event Series From ‘X-Men’ Writer David Hayter

FOX World War 3 David Hayter Event Series
Paramount

Like many networks, FOX has been making stronger and stronger pushes into the “event series” model, most prominently to be featured in 2014 with ‘24‘ revival ‘24: Live Another Day‘ and M. Night Shyamalan‘s upcoming spooker ‘Wayward Pines.’ Now, the network may have put into development its most epic event series yet, starting the self-describing series ‘World War III’!

News of the forthcoming apocalypse comes to us from Deadline (of course it would), elaborating of ‘World War III’ that the David Hayter (‘X-Men‘)-written series will chronicle “a perfect storm of world events [that] places us in the center of a global battle which may bring the world as we know it to an end.”

Hayter will also serve as showrunner and executive produce along with ‘Hatfields & McCoys‘ producer Leslie, Greif, for a production to be backed by FX productions. So far, FOX has ordered Hayter’s pilot script and a bible for the series, in order to flesh out a potential multi-season arc, though the series remains in a nascent stage.

The increased call for “event series” at major networks could definitely propel ‘World War III’ forward, especially given the nature of the series would reach beyond a typical sci-fi audience. Think ‘Revolution,’ without the niche. We’ll keep an ear to the ground for the latest, but tell us if you’d watch FOX’s ‘World War III’ in the comments!
