Announcement: Scion TV


Jenkins and Tate Entertainment Announce development deal for live-action tv series based on the Scion role-playing game by Onyx Path Publishing

Rich Thomas, founder and creative director of Onyx Path Publishing, in conjunction with Jenkins and Tate Entertainment announced a new partnership today. Jenkins and Tate Entertainment will be developing a live-action tv series based on the Scion role-playing game by Onyx Path.

“We’re truly excited to be developing this adventure series for TV in collaboration with Onyx Path.” said Brian Jenkins. “We are looking forward to working closely with them in order to bring the world of Scion to life.”

Scion is a game about Gods and humanity, and everything in between. It’s a game about mythic Deeds and the reasons people talk about those mythic Deeds. Its first edition was published in 2007, and it quickly gained an enthusiastic following, winning the ENnies Game of the Year award. Now available in a new edition using Onyx Path’s Storypath System, Scion 2nd Edition offers a modern mythical setting to tell heroic tales.

“Find your destiny and embrace the myth… on your TV screen! We at Onyx Path are thrilled to announce that our friends at Jenkins and Tate Entertainment are officially developing a live-action TV series of Scion!” said Rich Thomas. “From logo design to questions about props, these folks are huge Scion fans who want to get the important elements of Scion right. We can’t wait to tell you more about when you can see living, breathing children of the gods in your living room!”

The creative teams at Onyx Path Publishing and Jenkins and Tate Entertainment are hard at work collaborating on the series pitch and will have more details to reveal in the coming months.

  1. What I love about this is that since it’s based on an rpg, they creators of the show still have lots of creative freedom with characters and plot while still being true to your source material.

  2. I really hope Mythos and Dragon characters intersect the main plot at odd angles that allude to their own weird stories. *stranger enters* “Who are you?” “Scion of Him Who Is Not To Be Named.” “Odin’s ravens! Your dad is Voldemort?” “Worse. Just give me that play while you can still enjoy your dreams.” “Sure, I hate theatre.” *stranger exists* *plot resumes*

  3. Very exciting news…can’t help but wonder, though…Is this good timing with American Gods series out there? Or maybe because of that, it is a perfect timing?

    • You can’t wait with your announcements or with your opportunities based on whether there are other shows (or books or games or whatever) in existence.
