Masters of Doom TV Pilot Picked Up For USA Network

When it comes to video game titles, there are a few standouts that really helped pave the way for other series. One of those iconic standouts is Doom, a video game that put players into the role of a marine who battles against demons from hell. The series really took off and is still thriving today. In fact, we’re sure you are all familiar with the 2016 reboot of Doom that had incredible success in markets worldwide. Now the sequel, Doom Eternal is gearing up for a release that we’re sure will do just as well if not better than the 2016 title launch. At any rate, it doesn’t come to much surprise that more projects would emerge about the series and one of them was just greenlit for a TV pilot.

The series is known as Masters of Doom and it’s being produced by Dave and James Franco. Masters of Doom is not necessarily a series related to just the Doom universe. Instead, this is a series based off a non-fiction novel of the same name but written by David Kushner in 2003. The novel is the telling of the creators John Carmack and John Romero as they entered the game industry business as best friends but were torn apart from the creation of their video game titles.

As mentioned, this series only has a pilot confirmed for the USA Network so we can’t get too excited as it’s no telling if this series will continue on. However, if things go according to plan, then we may see an anthology based series for Masters of Doom. For now, we’ll have to wait and see just what happens with the TV pilot. As for Doom Eternal, the upcoming installment to the much-beloved franchise, you can pick up the game on November 22, 2019, for the PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Google Stadia.
