It's a 'Brave New World' for Syfy, Steven Spielberg
One day after sending its adaptation of Lev Grossman's "The Magicians" to series, Syfy is staying in the prestige game, developing a scripted series based on Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World."
The project, which so far doesn't even have a pilot order, will be adapted by Les Bohem and executive produced by Steven Spielberg, who worked together on the Emmy-winning extra-terrestrial miniseries "Taken."
"'Brave New World' is one of the most influential genre classics of all time," blurbs Syfy and Chiller President Dave Howe. "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." — Daniel Fienberg
