A new television series is in development from HBO and Warner Bros. TV that will adapt Isaac Asimov’s science fiction epic “Foundation” Trilogy for television. At the head of the project is Interstellar screenwriter Jonathan Nolan, who will write and produce the series, as reported by TheWrap. It should be noted that Jonathan Nolan has had some experience in the art of adapting science fiction novels to television, as he has recently adapted Michael Chrichton’s Westworld which was also for HBO and Warner Bros. TV but in collaboration with, J.J. Abrams production company, Bad Robot.

Jonathan Nolan expressed his interest and excitement to work on the adaption of the trilogy in a recent interview with Indiewire.

“Well, I fucking love the ‘Foundation’ novels by Isaac Asimov. They’re certainly not [unknown], but that’s a set of books I think everyone would benefit from reading. That’s a set of books where the influence they have is just fucking massive. They have many imitators and many have been inspired by them, but go back and read those, and there are some ideas in those that’ll set your fucking hair on fire,”

The Foundation Trilogy follows Mathematician Hari Seldon, who developed a branch of mathematical sociology coined as psychohistory, which he used to predict the fall of the Galactic Empire. The only sign of hope is to gather a foundation of the world’s most imaginative minds and skilled engineers to salvage the future with a enlightened empire.
