From comic books and novels to video games and apps, there’s few pop culture hobbies and brands that Hollywood wouldn’t consider for an adaptation. This includes board games, and Hasbro’s classic strategy game Risk is the next in line for the TV treatment.
As reported by Deadline, a Risk show is being developed by Beau Willimon, who previously worked as showrunner on Netflix’s political drama House of Cards. The series is the result of a deal between Willimon’s production company Westward and the entertainment company eOne, who also produced HBO’s hit Sharp Objects and is owned by Hasbro.
In a statement, Willimon and co-producer Jordan Tappis said, “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.”
