Broadcasting & Cable is reporting that George R.R. Martin is developing a new science fiction drama with HBO.
George R.R. Martin is no stranger to HBO, of course. Game of Thrones, based on Martin’s A Song of Icce and Fire fantasy book series, is a worldwide sensation. This new show, however, will be a science fiction show.
The new series is a period drama called Captain Cosmos and “centers on a young science fiction writer in 1949, at the dawn of the TV age”. The series is to be co-produced by Martin and Z Nation coexecutive producer Michael Cassutt, who is also an author. Cassutt is writing the series, which is still in the early stages of its development.
I’m excited to see what devlops from this. For some reason, it’s conjuring images of Captain Future.
