Mirror’s Edge hitting the small screen with TV adaptation

EA DICE’s Mirror’s Edge is getting the television treatment with a “female-centered action series,” according to Deadline.

Though there is no mention yet of a network or airdate, we do know it’s being produced by Endemol Shine Studios, producers behind British serials Broadchurch (starring Doctor Who‘s David Tennant), Peaky Blinders (starring 28 Days Later‘s Cillian Murphy), and Irish/American co-production The Fall (starring Gillian Anderson, who should need no introduction).

“We clearly see Mirror’s Edge as a franchise for the global TV audience,” says Endemol Shine president Sharon Hall. “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.”

The fact that EA is licensing Mirror’s Edge for a TV adaptation — you know, a thing which traditionally goes on for a while, if the ratings are good — says to me that EA is committed into expanding Mirror’s Edge as a major property now. That’s good news for fans, for whom the upcoming reboot Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is an appreciated but chronically overdue follow-up to the 2007 original.

Let’s just hope they don’t make Faith white. Please. Please.
