Fallout TV show trademark registered

Remember Fallout 3 radio DJ Three Dog's voice actor teasing we might see more of the character, bow-wow-wow, soon? It was tough to not start quivering in anticipation of impending Fallout 4 news, but a trademark registration sniffed out by Eurogamer points in a less expected, but still very exciting, direction.

This particular "Fallout" trademark applies to "entertainment services in the nature of an on-going television program set in a post-nuclear apocalyptic world," which speaks for itself in a way that precious few trademark and patent filings tend to do.

Erik Todd Dellums (Three Dog's voice actor) has a lot of voice work in his portfolio, but he's also seen some screen time, including a recurring role on acclaimed HBO drama The Wire.

We don't know anything about the program beyond a potential Three Dog appearance, but a live-action series given proper love from HBO or AMC could be excellent. Just imagine telling all your friends you were into water chips and super mutants before they went prime time.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
