Westworld Creators' Futuristic Drama The Peripheral Gets Amazon Pickup


Quote:
Based on William Gibson's book of the same name, the project was put in development in April 2018 with a script-to-series commitment.

Westworld creators Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan have landed their first series order at Amazon.

The duo's take on William Gibson's futuristic novel The Peripheral has been picked up straight to series at the streaming giant the husband-and-wife writing and producing duo now call home. An episode count has not yet been determined.

Writer Scott B. Smith (A Simple Plan) will serve as showrunner on the drama, originally put in development back in April 2018, that revolves around Flynne Fisher, a woman trying to hold together the pieces of her broken family in a forgotten corner of tomorrow's America. Flynne is smart, ambitious and doomed. She has no future. Until the future comes calling for her. Joy and Nolan will exec produce the drama via their Kilter Films banner. The series hails from Warner Bros. Television, Joy and Nolan's previous home before they departed in April for a rich nine-figure overall deal with Amazon.

In addition to Smith, director Vincenzo Natali (In the Tall Grass), Nolan, Joy, Athena Wickham (Westworld) and Steven Hoban (In the Tall Grass) will also exec produce.

"Thirty-five years ago, William Gibson invented the future. With The Peripheral he brings us another look, and his vision is as clear, intoxicating and terrifying as ever,” Nolan and Joy said in a joint statement. “All of us at Kilter are incredibly proud to be supporting Vincenzo and Scott's brilliant vision for bringing Gibson's work to the screen.”

Anyone read this one? It's been in my TBR pile forever.

Ah yes, Amazon. The once amazing store that has devolved into a Chinese third party seller knockoff marketplace. Do they not realize what this will do to their business? My dad's house (a senior) burned to the ground probably because of the cheap Chinese no-name crap they sell on Amazon. Because as a senior he just looks for the cheapest price for everything.

Used to be a huge Amazon believer but haven't had Prime for a year and good riddance. Walmart has really caught up nicely anyway without the fake Chinese crap. And I support Barnes and Bestbuy whenever I can in store and online, so my neighborhood doesn't become a ghost town of giant empty storefronts.
