TVLine reports that during the TCA summer press tour yesterday, Showtime programming chief Gary Levine described the upcoming Halo series as the channel's "most ambitious series ever", saying that it's not Showtime's Game of Thrones, but "our Halo".
Meaning, yes, franchise front man Master Chief will be a character on the series, Nevins affirmed.
Plus, Showtime made "a conscious decision" to enlist for Halo writers "not known for sci-fi, not known for big-battle movies", so as to "get under the armor of the Spartans" aka the supersoldier space Marine characters.
However, Levine made sure to be vague when discussing the challenge of having the Halo series with Master Chief as protagonist when viewers never see his face.
"...is a key question and an important part of our series, is all I'll say."
"I think it's a very different genre".

Chelsea goalkeeper Courtois wants to return to Madrid for family reasons
With Eden Hazard, N'Golo Kante and Thibaut Courtois all being linked with moves elsewhere, Blues fans have a right to be anxious . Head coach Maurizio Sarri has acknowledged that he is unsure whether Courtois will remain at Chelsea for the upcoming campaign.
Levine also told reporters that the show will have a new story that will be "incredibly respectful of the canon" created for the video game franchise.
Nevins, though, said that he feels about Killen the same way that he felt about Homeland's Alex Gansa before that series became a hit (and is now entering Season 8).
"It took us a long time to get the script but we felt like we had something that was really interesting and felt like it belonged on Showtime in terms of its character depth, and it's going to be a big show", explained Nevins. Probably 10 or 12 of the top movies of all time are futuristic sci fi, and it's weird that television hasn't turned up those kind of franchises.
I've been around these streets long enough to have heard about all the attempts to bring "Halo" the big screen, only to have those dreams turn into ash like a Marvel character.
