Bungie gears up for Destiny movies and TV shows

Bungie is currently ramping up its workforce to adapt Destiny and other franchises into movies and TV shows.

The linear media list specifically mentions coordination with streaming giants, networks and broadcasters for transmedia projects.

  • Experience with licensed products and/or animation, scripted television development or current programming
  • Work with outside producers, studio production managers, network and/or editors to resolve creative and production related issues
