Battlefield: Bad Company TV show coming to Fox - Report

Who needs the A-Team when there's Bad Company? The military antics of Sarge, Haggard, Sweetwater, and Marlowe may be coming to the small screen, as Deadline reports Fox is adapting Battlefield: Bad Company into a television show.

The project is reportedly being headed by Alias producer John Eisendrath and Adam Sandler studio Happy Madison. Deadline states the series will portray the four hard-lucked soldiers in an hour-long action comedy series, following the troops as they leave the military and join the private sector.

Of course, nothing goes according to plan for Bad Company, and they find their civilian lives harried by a former superior officer looking to tie up loose ends on his shady operations.

The series will reportedly also be produced by EA's Patrick Bach and Patrick O'Brien, and Happy Madison's Doug Robinson. We've reached out to EA for comment on the report but have received no response as of publication time.

    The dialogue and back-and-forth between those four archetypical characters was often quite funny, especially as the situations they find themselves in get increasingly hairy and ridiculous.

    From teh picture, I actually thought they had Dwayne Johnson signed up to play Sarge. Not sure whether that'd ruin the absolutely brilliant team, or make it even better.

    I'd watch it. What I'm curious about is who they would cast.

    I wonder if this means we might get a new Bad Company game sometime. I hope so. I much prefer the Bad Company games to BF3.

    It could be funny I guess.

    EA and Adam Sandler? I smell an awful pilot in the works.

    Adam Sandler is involved? Oh god. I actually found Bad Company 1 (not so much 2) to have a lot of personality. But if that idiot has a hand in it, it'll devolve into poop jokes and lame voices. But still funnier than Family Guy.
