USA Network has ordered a live action television series based on Aldous Huxley's Brave New World - with Grant Morrison involved, according to Variety. Morrison is working on the pilot with David Wiener and Brian Taylor, with the project originally set-up in 2015 at USA's sister company Syfy under the NBCUniveral umbrella.
"Aldous Huxley's tour de force, Brave New World is a darkly satiric vision of a 'utopian' future -where humans are genetically bred and pharmaceutically anesthetized to passively serve a ruling order," reads Harper Perennial's description of the book. "A powerful work of speculative fiction that has enthralled and terrified readers for generations, it remains remarkably relevant to this day as both a warning to be heeded as we head into tomorrow and as thought-provoking, satisfying entertainment."
Morrison, Wiener, and Amblin Television's Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey are set as executive producers. Wiener has been tapped as showrunner, with Owen Harris directing the first episode.
No timetable for the show's release has been announced by USA.
