Following the acclaim of the recent web series, Street Fighter is getting a new live-action TV show.
According to Deadline, Entertainment One and Capcom will help fund a new TV series based on the massively popular Street Fighter game series. The creators and team behind the Assassin's Fist will produce the show and it'll likely follow the same format as the British-based web show. With over 40 million units sold across the globe, Street Fighter remains one of the most well-known video game franchises in the industry.
"Street Fighter is a global tour de force franchise, having garnered immense worldwide commercial success and built a vast devoted fanbase that has only grown through its 30 year legacy. We are thrilled to be teaming up with Joey, Jacqueline and Mark, who are already so deeply connected to this brand, to bring this adored story to television audiences everywhere," said Mark Gordon, eOne's President and Chief Content Officer, Film, Television and Digital. "A particular strength of Street Fighter is the wide range of ethnically diverse characters and powerful women featured in the game. It will allow us to build an inclusive and engaging TV universe."
