Woah now! Out of Hasbro’s Investor day event comes word of a G.I. Joe Live Action TV Series, based on Lady Jaye!
The show is currently in the works at Amazon From Erik Oleson, Paramount TV Studios, eOne & Skydance TV. Here’s the scoop from the folks over at Deadline –
Deadline understands that a live-action TV series about the character, who was portrayed by Adrianne Palicki in the 2013 feature film G.I. Joe: Retaliation, is in the works at Amazon.
Erik Oleson, the showrunner and executive producer of the upcoming second season of Amazon’s Legendary-produced Carnival Row, will create and showrun the series and will exec produce alongside Lorenzo DiBonaventura.
It comes from Paramount Television Studios, eOne and Skydance Television.
The series will be a standalone story centered around Jaye, which will also connect to the larger G.I. Joe universe.
I wish all involved the best of luck, as a live action show is exactly what G.I.Joe needs! Are you excited about the news of a live action show?
