TV adaptation of "Masters of Doom" in the works
USA network has just ordered to series an adaptation of David Kushner's 2003 novel "Masters of Doom". The show will chronicle the development of the infamous first-person shooter Doom which created waves in the gaming industry and the controversy it stirred up in the early 90s. The show won't be like a documentary but more like a scripted series that will portray the creation of the legendary shooter and the scenes that took place behind-the-scenes with the development, as well as the dividing rivalry that affected the relationship of co-creators John
Carmack and John Romero. The show will be produced by the Franco brothers, (yup, James and Dave Franco) and Tom Bissell will act as the lead writer in charge of the screenplay, which will focus on the formation of Id Software studios, the heated development of the game, and the unprecedented success it achieved as well as the shock it caused due to its' violent content. No news yet on the casting or when the show will be expected to air.
