    Microsoft Studios’ “Halo 5: Guardians” sci-fi video game is set to become the basis of a reality-competition eSports series.

    Microsoft Studios’ 343 Industries, developer of the blockbuster “Halo” first-person shooter series, has struck a deal with TV production company Pilgrim Media Group to develop the show. The partners did not reveal an expected premiere date, nor have they lined up TV or digital distribution deals for the series at this point.

    The deal for the “Halo 5: Guardians” show is the first project to emerge from the joint initiative of Pilgrim Media, Lionsgate and video-game league ESL to create and distribute original eSports entertainment content for TV and digital platforms. Previously, Lionsgate made an equity investment in Pilgrim Media last year.
