Marc Ecko Entertainment (Getting Up) has announced it has entered into an agreement with Showtime Networks to design a videogame based on the Emmy and Golden Globe winning television series Dexter. Marc Ecko Entertainment is to “develop the property for interactive media in close collaboration with Showtime Networks to guarantee its faithfulness to the spirit of the groundbreaking show.” Marc Ecko Entertainment produced 2005’s Getting Upp and is currently working on an untitled project with developer Human Head. The Dexter game is currently in pre-production and Showtime Networks and Marc Ecko Entertainment are in talks with a handful of developers for the development phase. Dexter follows Dexter Morgan, a forensic blood spatter expert for the Miami Dade Police Department with a double life: he’s secretly a serial killer who hunts down people who have escaped justice. "Dexter is the extremely rare TV show with enough layers of action and tension to translate perfectly into a compelling video game," said Marc Fernandez, vice president of Marc Ecko Entertainment. "Our game designers, writers, and artists are going to give Dexter’s morally complex world the kind of interactivity that gamers will love."
