Aside from upcoming TV show, dj2 Entertainment has license to well-known video game series like Life is Strange, Sleeping Dogs, Vampyr and We Happy Few with further plans to work on feature film projects or making TV series adaptations.

Their only project that got greenlit so far is recent live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie, which became a blockbuster. No writer is currently attached to the project just yet as dj2 is actively looking for one to make a pitch for later in 2020.

It will be very interesting to see how an amnesiac detective, Harrier "Harry" DuBois will be discovering his own identity as well as whatever character traits of lead protagonist from his "Thought Cabinet" would make it to the show.

Detective RPG experience of BAFTA award winner Disco Elysium heading over to small screens will be pretty exciting for fans. ZA/UM and dj2 Entertainment has yet to assign a TV network or streaming platform for broadcasting partnership.
