Frank Spotnitz is developing a TV series based on Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000 universe! Spotnitz is the creator of The Man In The High Castle which runs on Amazon Prime.

While there have been animated movies, this would mark the first big-budget live-action TV series based on the wargame empire’s hugely popular board games, miniatures and novels.

Specifically, Spotnitz’s Big Light Productions is eying "Eisenhorn," a sci-fi and fantasy series set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, where mankind teeters on the brink of annihilation.

Synopsis:
While humanity’s armies wage unending war across a million battlefields, in the darkness, a secret conflict rages – fought by the agents of the Imperial Inquisition. Drawing from sci-fi, fantasy and crime genres, Eisenhorn will see Inquisitor Gregor Eisenhorn and his band of investigators fight to thwart the monstrous schemes of aliens, heretics and daemons before mankind’s doom is sealed.


There is no broadcaster or platform attached at the moment but the partners will be taking it out to market soon.



Recommended Release: Warhammer Ultramarines

There are some *fantastic* fan-made films on YouTube set in the Warhammer 40K universe, especially a series made by Richard Boylan (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTaGjGmcHYD2fqukCIVfjvQ)
Amazon would be wise to hire this fellow on as a creative consultant.

I am leery. Warhammer is so "dialed to 11", *all the time*, that I think it would be ridiculous as a series.
