HBO has conquered the fantasy genre with Game of Thrones, and now the cable network is looking to delve into science fiction with a project called The Spark, EW has confirmed. Deadline first reported the news.
Now in development (so it’s not guaranteed to be picked up to air), The Spark comes from the mind of Karl Gajdusek, creator of military TV series Last Resort, which premiered last fall but was canceled by ABC mid-season. Gajdusek also co-wrote the recent Tom Cruise sci-fi flick Oblivion.
Here’s the story description for the potential series from Deadline’s report:
Gajdusek is writing the pilot and would executive produce the show.
