Live Action Street Fighter Series Announced
Capcom's Street Fighter franchise, the popular arcade fighting game series, is coming to television screens in a brand new live action series.
Entertainment One will be producing the show, along with Jacqueline Quella, Joey Ansah, and Mark Wooding, the creative team behind the popular web series 'Street Fighter: Assassins Fist'. The new series will take inspiration from the World Warrior story line introduced in 'Street Fighter 2', and will centre on Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, and Guille as they work together to take on the global criminal organisation Shadaloo, run by M. Bison.
Entertainment One's President and Chief Content Officer Mark Gordon said, 'Street Fighter is a global tour de force franchise, having garnered immense worldwide commercial success and built a vast devoted fanbase that has only grown through its 30 year legacy. We are thrilled to be teaming up with Joey, Jacqueline, and Mark, who are already so deeply connected to this brand, to bring the adored story to television audiences everywhere.
'A particular strength of Street Fighter is the wide range of ethnically diverse characters and powerful women featured in the game. It will allow us to build an inclusive and engaging TV universe.'
