I’ve been a longtime fan of Pablo Schreiber, ever since he played Nick Sobotka on HBO’s The Wire. In recent years, I’ve seen him make the leap from character actor to leading man, and now he has landed his biggest project yet in that regard, having been cast as Master Chief in Showtime’s live-action HALO series, the network announced Wednesday.

HALO will weave deeply drawn personal stories with action, adventure and a richly imagined vision of the future. The series is set in the 26th century, where Master Chief is Earth’s most advanced warrior and the only hope of salvation for a civilization pushed to the brink of destruction by the Covenant, an unstoppable alliance of alien worlds committed to the destruction of humanity. Newcomer Yerin Ha will play a new character within the HALO universe — Quan Ah, a shrewd, audacious 16-year-old from the Outer Colonies who meets Master Chief at a fateful time for them both.

HALO is based on the iconic Xbox franchise that has sold more than 77 million copies worldwide and grossed more than $60 billion in lifetime sales. The series is produced by Showtime in partnership with 343 Industries, along with Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television. Production will begin this fall in Budapest, Hungary. Kyle Killen (Awake) and Steven Kane (The Last Ship) serve as co-showrunners and executive producers. Halo is also executive produced by Amblin’s Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey, director Otto Bathurst and Toby Leslie of One Big Picture, Scott Pennington of Chapter Eleven, and Karen Richards. The series will be distributed globally by CBS Studios International.
