Zynga, director Brett Ratner to cultivate animated FarmVille TV show
"FarmVille is one of the most exciting brands out there today and its cross-platform opportunities are endless. I am thrilled to be expanding the brand with existing fans and also engaging a whole new audience," Ratner said in a statement, Deadline reports. It seems that no network is currently attached to the potential FarmVille show.
That said, we would count on a FarmVille show to go straight to cable, but Ratner and crew could prove otherwise. This brings up another question: What the hell kind of audience would it cater to? Adults--the primary FarmVille fan base--generally steer away from cartoons unless they have a mature skew, and there's not much about FarmVille that's like, say, The Simpsons. If one thing is for certain, it's that Zynga and Ratner plan to tackle quite a challenge. Then again, this is like that time rumor had it that a FarmVille movie was happening--that was over a year ago.
