Fox to do Destroy All Humans! CGI-animated series for primetime TV

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Fox Broadcasting Co. has acquired the rights to turn THQ's best-selling sci-fi video game "Destroy All Humans!" into a computer-animated comedy. It marks the first time a video game will be used as the basis for a primetime network television program.

"The goal is to make the show as good and as funny as the video game," said former "King of the Hill" writer/co-executive producer Jim Dauterive, who will develop the project...

"Hopefully, if we pull this off, people will be asking why haven't we done this before," Dauterive said.

Game developer Pandemic's Australian studio created "Destroy" for THQ. The game has shipped more than 1 million units worldwide since it launched in June.
