Johnny Mnemonic the series


Prodigy Pictures in Canada has formed a joint venture with Seven Arts Entertainment to produce series and miniseries, including a small-screen version of the movie Johnny Mnemonic.

Prodigy (Lost Girl) and indie movie shop Seven Arts are collaborating . Mnemonic revisits the story of a futuristic courier who rents out space in his brain to shady clients, seen previously in the 1995 movie and the short story by William Gibson.

Is it going to be a TV version of the movie, or of the original prose story?

It says "revisits." Maybe it's a sequel or pilot.

He was pretty solid in House of Cards, so good news, I guess.

As much as I love del Toro though I can't think of a single vampire TV series I've liked, so even while Strain seems to eschew romantic vampires, I'm kind of on the fence.

The last vampire show I actually enjoyed, was Forever Knight in the mid-'90s. It's been a few weeks since then.

I liked Moonlight and sort of liked Forever Knight but otherwise vampires shows have never held much interest for me.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

J.J. Abrams‘ Bad Robot is in negotiations for the rights to Stephen King‘s bestselling 2011 novel 11/22/63. The deal is being done through Warner Bros TV, where Bad Robot is under a deal. I hear the plan is to adapt the book as a TV series or miniseries, likely for cable. 11/22/63 centers on Jake, an unassuming divorced English teacher who stumbles upon a time portal that leads to 9/9/1958 and goes on a quest to try and prevent the assassination of John F. Kennedy, which occurred on November 22, 1963.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

Julie plec has single handedly ruined tvd and since she is going to also be running the originals this doesn't bode well but then again since it is going to be on the cw angst and love polygons ought to appeal to the mindless bieber loving teenager.

I thought the backdoor pilot was actually one of the best TVD episodes so far this season.

A 11/22/63 series? I don't see how that could work, except if they develop the concept of the Green/Yellow card guys further and place them in other situations.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

An interesting writers development for a show that (regardless of the creator/developer) I initially had no real interest in:

Ira Steven Behr has been hired to help bring Ron D Moores' OUTLANDER to realisation on Starz:

Nice to see the pair working again

Is this the first they've worked together since DS9?

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

Fox and NBC have made some decisions about their pilots for next season:

Fox has picked up Almost Human and Sleepy Hollow and passed on Delirium.

NBC has passed on The Sixth Gun.
