My Friend Pedro was one of the wackier games to have come out of last year. It involved a lot of acrobatics and bullets, making it easy to draw parallels between it and John Wick. And now, it looks like the co-creater of the latter is turning the former into a TV series.
The TV series for My Friend Pedro will be made by Legendary Television, DJ2 Entertainment, and 87North Productions. It’s described as “an R-rated half-hour dramedy”. Also on board the project as executive producers are David Leitch, director of John Wick and Deadpool 2, andKelly McCormick, who produced Deadpool 2.
As mentioned, the similarity between My Friend Pedro and John Wick is easy to see. This definitely makes for an easy adaptation, and the only ingredient missing is a sentient banana. And based on the game, we can probably expect the game to have all the over-the-top action, and maybe not so much story. It will be interesting to see if the comedy of the game can be translated into a TV series well.
This is another game that has been recently announced to be making the transition to TV. Amazon Studios has also teased the making of a Fallout TV series, which will see the director of the game series Todd Howard serving as an executive producer.
