Beau Willimon Adapting Hasbro Board Game 'Risk' As TV Series


Recommended Posts

Beau Willimon will write and oversee the development of a TV series adaptation of the strategy classic board game Risk with eOne.

Risk is game that mixes diplomacy and conflict and conquest with up to six players competing on a board depicting a political map of the world, divided into 42 territories across six continents. They control armies, whose actions are determined by dice roles.  The game was created by Albert Lamorisse in 1957 and has gone on to become one of the most popular board games in history.

Jordan Tappis’ production company Westward will produce after inking a multi-year deal with eOne.

“As we continue to build out eOne’s world-class content slate, we couldn’t think of more perfect partners than Beau and Jordan – whose award-winning storytelling and imagination are among the best in the business,” said Michael Lombardo, President, Global Television, eOne. “In Beau, we’ve found an amazing combination of brilliant producer, singular creator, and avid fan of Risk. We can’t wait to work with him and the rest of the Westward team to reimagine that brand and so much more.”

“All of us at Westward are thrilled to join forces with eOne to bring to life some of the most successful IP in the marketplace as well as partner on our extensive slate of scripted television shows. We’re excited to develop Risk as our first project together,” added Willimon and Tappis.

 

Beau Willimon is credited with creating Netflix's House of Cards and Hulu's space drama The First.

The man's credentials are solid but... wasn't there a show called Game of Thrones recently that was pretty much Risk in a fantasy setting with dragons, zombies, and sex?

Well, this will be less interesting.
