The Los Angeles Times is reporting that HBO and BBC Worldwide Productions are moving forward with developing a miniseries of Nine Inch Nails’ album “Year Zero”.
“We are in [the development phase of] pre-production with HBO and BBC [Worldwide Productions] to do a miniseries,” Trent Reznor told the L.A. Times. “It’s exciting. I probably shouldn’t say too much about it except that I understand that there’s a thousand hurdles before anything shows up in your TV listing. It’s been an interesting and very educational process and it cleared the HBO hurdle a few months ago and now we’re writing drafts back and forth. So it’s very much alive and incubating at the moment.”
Reznor is working with the team of Lawrence Bender, known for producing the Quentin Tarantino films “Pulp Fiction”, “Inglourious Basterds”, and “Reservoir Dogs”, and Kevin Kelly Brown, who was executive producer on “Roswell”.
