Apple Orders a Straight-to-Series Adaptation of Asimov's Foundation

Apple Orders a Straight-to-Series Adaptation of Asimov's Foundation

This news comes nearly a year after the announcement that Skydance was in the process of developing the series for television with David S. Goyer and Josh Friedman.

After competitive bidding, Apple landed the deal to turn Isaac Asimov's sprawling saga into a drama series in news first reported by Deadline. In addition to scripting Man of Steel, Goyer has co-written Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Batman Begins, worked on the story for The Dark Knight and its sequel The Dark Knight Rises, and created the Superman prequel Krypton.

For Apple, the Asimov adaptation joins a long list of projects, including a morning show drama with Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, a space drama for Battlestar Galactica creator Ronald D. Moore, an anthology series on immigrants from The Big Sick writers Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, and a thriller series from M. Night Shyamalan. It was a clear influencer on George Lucas' original Star Wars movies, and even the likes of Game of Thrones author George RR Martin might acknowledge the influence the epic film had on his own work, as well as on all literary science fiction.

Isaac Asimov's Foundation novels remain in print, decades later. Goyer and Friedman will be executive producers and showrunners.

Based on Asimov's novel series of the same name, "Foundation" is set far in the future about humans scattered across distant planets all under the rule of the Galactic Empire. Asimov's trilogy has been tried numerous times as a feature film at Fox, Warner Bros (with Bob Shaye and Michael Lynne, who greenlit The Lord of the Rings), and then at Sony with Independence Day director Roland Emmerich.

Foundation came close to becoming a TV series in 2014, when now-Westworld executive producer Jonathan Nolan signed on to develop a series for HBO. At least now we will see progress in bringing the beloved sci-fi property to life on the small screen.
