It is an explosive ballet about friendship, imagination, and one man’s turbulent battle through the criminal underworld at the behest of a sentient banana (the titular Pedro).

Legendary Television successfully acquired the TV rights to the game through their first-look deal with dj2 Entertainment, the studio behind the Sonic the Hedgehog film. The series will be an R-rated half-hour comedy-drama which will be written by Kolstad.

In addition to Kolstad, John Wick co-director David Leitch (Deadpool 2, Hobbs & Shaw) is also set as an executive producer along with 87North’s Leitch and Kelly McCormick. Devolver Digital co-founder Mike Wilson and dj2 Entertainment’s Dmitri M. Johnson are also executive producing alongside shingle’s Stephan Bugaj and Howard Bliss.
