It’s been at least 3 years in the making, but don’t count Trent Reznor’s sci-fi television series based on his 2007 Nine Inch Nails concept album/alternate reality game, Year Zero, out just yet. LA Times’ Hero Complex reports that Reznor and Co. are currently “in pre-production with HBO and BBC America to do a miniseries,” enlisting Carnivàle writer Daniel Knauf to help pen the script and revise “the overall world Bible.”
”[Year Zero] cleared the HBO hurdle a few months ago and now we’re writing drafts back and forth,” said Reznor. So who are “we”? Film producer Lawrence Bender’s team, which boasts production credits that include Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction, Inglourious Basterds, and former WB series Roswell, have backed the project, as well.
In other Reznor news, his score with Atticus Ross for director David Fincher’s The Social Network finally reached our ears earlier this month. Check out Pitchfork’s interview with Reznor and Fincher discussing their collaboration here.
