Get Ready as‘Fallout’ Opens Its Vault on 11 April


Open the vault to the exciting world of Fallout streaming exclusively on Prime Video starting 11 April. Created by executive producers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy (Westworld), Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Captain Marvel) and Graham Wagner (The Office, Silicon Valley), Fallout transports viewers into a post-nuclear apocalypse, where survival becomes an enduring struggle for humanity. Nolan himself directed the first three episodes, promising a cinematic experience like no other.

“Fallout 3 was the entry point for me,” shares Nolan, reflecting on his initial encounter with the game that would later inspire the series. “It’s dark, violent, but it’s also satirical and in some places almost goofy. It’s all these amazing things in one. I’ve never really experienced anything quite like it.”

Fast forward to 10 years later, Nolan met with Todd Howard, the game developer behind Fallout 3, setting the stage for a collaboration that would redefine storytelling. “When I first talked to Jonah, honestly, he seemed like someone I had known for a long time,” recalls Howard. “He’d obviously played the games a ton, and right from the get-go, his approach was in sync with what I was thinking.”

Nolan’s vision led to the recruitment of Robertson-Dworet and Wagner, forming a creative trifecta committed to crafting an original narrative within the Fallout universe.

“We’re not interested in rehashing something that has been done beautifully as a game,” emphasizes Nolan. “Then, the question became how ambitious could we get with that story, which is where Geneva and Graham took over.”

Robertson-Dworet adds, “We’re not just adapting a game. We’re crafting a new story that delves deep into the complexities of humanity post-nuclear apocalypse.”
