Do you like playing Halo? Do you like watching shows? Well then you’re going to be especially excited about this A-lister news: Steven Spielberg is going to executive produce a new live-action Halo series for Xbox Live.

That’s right videogame-lovers! Microsoft announced Tuesday that in addition to their new Xbox One entertainment console, the legendary director has signed on to help transform Halo — a multibillion-dollar video game franchise — into a brand new series.

It is unclear as to when Halo will premiere, but the show will feature interactive content that will be exclusively linked to Microsoft’s newest Xbox console. The Xbox One will debut this fall and is set to replace it’s pervious model the Xbox 360.
