Actually umbrella and t virus are mentioned in the sinopsys, i guess they are the villain indeed @bSTAR_182
the story could be very similar to the original re game, since the sinopsys talk about event of 26 years ago, the show will be set 26 years after the sinopsys whit and epidemic accuring, this epidemic could actually be the raccon city incident, and we can still get our beloved character and story
Yeah its not that hard to adapt a game into a series, especially a series
I could image the re 1 series episode right now, first episode start whit showing us the life of jill and chris one day before the mansion incident, in this episode character and lore are introduced, the episode end whit Chris, jill and the other member talking to wesker who inform them that they lost contact whit bravo team... Second episode start whit the bravo team preparing for arriving at the mansion, they go on the elicopter, they arrive at bravo team chopper, they get to the mansion
Here the writer could have use the opportunity to tell re 1 real story, and that's how i would have tell it... Barry jill and wesker arrive at the main entrance of the mansion, while chris got separated and roam into the forest for a while when he finally find out a second entrance to the mansion... back to the other character, wesker order barry and jill to investigate the mansion under wesker order they find the first zombie and than go back to the hall to report to wesker but is nowhere to be found in the hall, Chris continue the search for the mansion and find the firts member of stars rebecca... The episode end here, and the other episode would have simply writed alone..
