YES. It seems to be real, so far as anyone knows. Here's the trailer:

Saw this on Rock Paper Shotgun this morning. Seems kinda dumb to be honest. As big a fan as I am of the series, I can do without a TV series.

hopefully the series will be one show long, and consist of ten minutes of dialogue then the protagonist runs into an anomaly.

How odd!
 
Wonder what it will turn out to be.

@beej: I'm just hoping we get a "get out of here STALKER"

I think the setting and general atmosphere of the Stalker series would make for a great TV show^^

It's not really that odd.  The game is based on movie called STALKER which in turn is based on a book.   Roadside Picnic.  Look it up.  It would be a great TV show atmosphere, as Aiur said.  If The Walking Dead can be a TV series, why not this?

If it's done with a quality near the level of The Walking Dead, I'm game.  
 
Otherwise, get out of here Stalker TV show.

From the trailer it looks...really bad. Didn't carry the feeling of Stalker at all for me. It almost seems like some sort of low-budget parody.

Come in, Stalker! Don't just stand there! Come in!

If it was just this over and over, I would be okay with that. 
Also, if it's anything like most Russian television, it'll be pretty bad.

@Laketown I'd settle for that but I can think of a plot even more evocative of my first time in SoC. Getting yakked at by some dudes, and then responding with "yeah I've played an fps before you wait out here I'll rescue nimble" and then the game showed me it wasn't here to play.

As long as Darren McGavin is in it somewhere.

Well hopefully it's a mini-series with each episode about an hour long just like "the Pacific" and "Band of Brothers". I seriously hope this turns out good though cause I really liked the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. franchise. Hell its even a coincidence that I'm playing Shadow of Chernobyl again with the STALKER Complete mod on now. :p

I really liked the film in its own right, but the show looks like a hokey action-horror with little of the atmosphere that made the games and the film what they are.
