Marc Ecko Entertainment - the company formed by fashion designer Marc Ecko - has sealed a deal with Showtime Networks to design a video game based on hit TV show Dexter.

The series follows Dexter Morgan, a forensic blood splatter expert for the Miami Dade Police Department who is a serial killer on the side.

"Dexter is the extremely rare TV show with enough layers of action and tension to translate perfectly into a compelling video game," said Marc Fernandez, VP of Marc Ecko Entertainment. "Our game designers, writers and artists are going to give Dexter's morally complex world the kind of interactivity that gamers will love."

Len Fogge, executive VP of marketing, digital media and research at Showtime, added: "Dexter is one of the most popular shows on Showtime with a particularly strong fan base among gamers. It's a very logical jump to create a game. We're confident Marc Ecko Entertainment's team has the unique talents to take Dexter to the interactive space in the right way."

The Dexter game is in pre-production and Showtime and Marc Ecko are in talks with a handful of developers to bring it to life.
