Dwell On It points out that back in February Bethesda Softworks applied for a trademark on the word Fallout for "entertainment services in the nature of an on-going television program."
It could be a case of covering all of your bases, or maybe they really are thinking about turning the role-playing game into a tv show. We've contacted Bethesda for comment and will update as soon as we hear something.
If they do a TV show I just hope it's a children's show. One of those kids' shows with a bunch of cartoon in it and maybe a zombie mascot. So cool.
