Everyone’s favorite geek goddess Felicia Day (The Guild, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog) has been tasked to write and star in an all new six-episode web series based on Bioware’s “Dragon Age” franchise.
Dubbed “Dragon Age: Redemption,” the web series will star Day’s character and elvish assassin Tallis, in a search for a rogue mage. It will take place in the land of Ferelden, a universe in which the first “Dragon Age” Origins” took place, as well as the world in the upcoming Dragon Age installment.
According to Day, her character is headstrong dirty fighter with a sarcastic sense of humor. It was important for Day to portray her as such because she “wanted to bring a modern sensibility to a fantasy character in a fantasy world.”
Here is what Day had to say about the project:
“I’m a huge Dragon Age fan, and I have been looking for a follow up project to The Guild for quite some time. I was thrilled when the opportunity to work with BioWare materialized. Dragon Age: Redemption allows me to tell a fantasy story in a new way, using a universe I really love.”
Filming for the series will begin in January, with Peter Winther as director and John Bartley as cinematographer. The series is set to release later this year.
