“We have a great team working together to bring this world to life for audio listeners, familiar as it is in another form to its millions of game fans,” said Alison Hindell, Commissioning Editor for Radio 4 Drama.
Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell franchise is being turned into a Radio 4 drama, due for release next month.
The eight-part series – dramatised by Sebastian Baczkiewicz and Paul Cornell – follows veteran Fourth Echelon agent Sam Fisher as he is thrust into a race against time when a sinister threat to global security is revealed.
Sam Fisher is played by Andonis Anthony, while the cast also includes Daisy Head, Rosalie Craig, Sacha Dhawan, Nikesh Patel and Will Poulter.
The series has been recorded in 3D binaural audio, meaning listening on headphones will give a more immersive experience.
“I am really thrilled to be bringing to Radio 4 and BBC Sounds this innovative and exciting series, and feel sure it will have listeners hooked from the start,” said Alison Hindell, Commissioning Editor for Radio 4 Drama.
“We have a great team working together to bring this world to life for audio listeners, familiar as it is in another form to its millions of game fans. We hope they will enjoy hearing situations and characters that they love, given added layers and dimensions through this new interpretation of the story, and the binaural element is an added bonus.”
Splinter Cell: Firewall will broadcast on Fridays on Radio 4 from December 2nd at 2.15pm.
