Fallout to Debut in April

Fallout, Prime Video’s new video game dramatisation from the creators of Westworld, will premiere on April 12.

Billed as “the story of haves and have-nots in a world in which there’s almost nothing left to have”, it’s set 200 years after the apocalypse, when the gentle denizens of luxury fallout shelters are forced to return to the irradiated hellscape their ancestors left behind — and are shocked to discover an incredibly complex, gleefully weird and highly violent universe.

Ella Purnell (Yellowjackets) plays Lucy, an optimistic Vault Dweller with a can-do spirit whose peaceful and idealistic nature is tested when people harm her loved ones.

Aaron Moten (Emancipation) plays Maximus, a young soldier who hides his tragic past as he serves in a militaristic faction called Brotherhood of Steel. He believes in the nobility of the Brotherhood’s mission to bring law and order to the Wasteland — and will do anything to further their goals.

Walton Goggins (The ShieldJustified)  plays The Ghoulm, who survives the wasteland as a pragmatic, ruthless bounty hunter with a mysterious past.

Kyle MacLaughlin plays Overseer Hank and Lucy’s father, who’s eager to change the world for the better.

The rest of the cast includes Moisés Arias (The King of Staten Island), Sarita Choudhury (Homeland), Michael Emerson (Person of Interest), Leslie Uggams (Deadpool), Frances Turner (The Boys), Dave Register (Heightened), Zach Cherry (Severance), Johnny Pemberton (Ant-Man), Rodrigo Luzzi (Dead Ringers), Annabel O’Hagan (Law & Order: SVU) and Xelia Mendes-Jones (The Wheel of Time).

The series comes from Kilter Films and executive producers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy.  Nolan directed the first three episodesGeneva Robertson-Dworet and Graham Wagner serve as executive producers, writers and co-showrunners.
