Mirror's Edge is on its way to television — Endemol Shine Studios has acquired the rights to adapt Electronic Arts' first-person parkour franchise as a "female-centered action series," reports Deadline.

"We clearly see Mirror’s Edge as a franchise for the global TV audience," said Sharon Hall, president of Endemol Shine Studios, in a statement to Deadline. "It has a strong female protagonist, a wildly rabid fan base and a worldwide brand that Electronic Arts and EA DICE have done an amazing job establishing."

Endemol Shine Studios handles scripted programming for Endemol Shine North America, and produces television shows such as AMC's Hell on Wheels. Endemol Shine North America also works on a number of reality TV series, including CBS' Big Brother, NBC's The Biggest Loser and Fox's MasterChef.

The Mirror's Edge franchise began in 2008 with Mirror's Edge and is continuing with Mirror's Edge Catalyst, which is set to launch June 7 on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. The series is developed by EA DICE.
