0

Syfy is working with Steve Spielberg’s Amblin Television to produce a TV series based on the classic novel Brave New World.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news today, saying that the series, based on the book about a futuristic society that’s brought down by an outsider who questions the system, will be produced by Amblin TV co-presidents Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey, among others.

Brave New World is one of the most influential genre classics of all time,” said Syfy president Dave Howe in a statement. “Its provocative vision of a future gone awry remains as powerful and as timeless as ever. Promising to be a monumental television event, Brave New World is precisely the groundbreaking programming that is becoming the hallmark of Syfy.”

This addition to the network’s roster comes a day after the announcement that The Magicians had been ordered for a full season, before the pilot premieres.

The addition of Brave New World to the Syfy programming schedule remains in-line with the network’s strategy to create bold and distinctive sci-fi fantasy drama. The network’s roster also includes high-profile scripted and development projects like the aforementioned The Magicians, December’s 10-part series The Expanse, starring Thomas Jane; Arthur C. Clarke’s epic mini-series Childhood’s End, also set to premiere this December; The Walking Dead EP Gale Anne Hurd’s 13-episode thriller Hunters; David Goyer’s Superman prequel, Krypton; and Incorporated, a pilot thriller from Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.
