Farmville game to become TV show

(KFVS) - An animated TV show is set to be launched based on the popular Facebook game, Farmville.

PC Magazine reports that movie director Brett Ratner will produce the project.

The show, which hasn't been picked up by a network yet, is slated to be a half-hour long per episode.

Making games into shows and movies seems to be the new trend.

The makers of Angry Birds say the game will be made into a feature-length movie set for release in 2016.
