Zynga’s FarmVille Television Show “Coming Soon”: Brett Ratner Named as Director
Zynga’s social game darling, FarmVille, has seen it’s fair share of cross-overs. Toys, plushies, boardgames, classic card games, a sequel spin-off social game (FarmVille 2), and it’s likely that a television show can be added to that list. A FarmVille television show? Yep. Games.com along with the rest of the Internet world report that a FarmVille television show is in fact in the works and even has named director Brett Ratner attached to the project.
Brett Ratner is most famous for directing the Rush Hour movie trilogy, X Men: The Last Stand and a slew of other projects.
“FarmVille is one of the most exciting brands out there today and its cross-platform opportunities are endless. I am thrilled to be expanding the brand with existing fans and also engaging a whole new audience,” Ratner told the WSJ.
So what exactly would a FarmVille television series be about? As a game, FarmVille is mostly about growing crops, working on quests and challenges, and of course interacting with neighbors as we (beg) and help each other reach goals. The game rolls by with thinly veiled plots and it doesn’t seem to make a huge difference anyways as players chug along maintaining their now nine different FarmVille farms. Plots other than dirt ones never seemed to matter much because there’s always too much work to be done and nobody has time for long drawn out novels on the farm.
Who would be the targeted audience for a FarmVille television show? FarmVille players are mostly adults, but would a television series be aimed at the same group or maybe a new one to attract a different audience and interest new players?
There’s still a lot of questions FarmVille Freaks are asking, but for now we’ll have to wait until we learn more details about this new form of FarmVille entertainment “coming soon” to your television.
As of now, no network is associated with the FarmVille television project.
